On January 17, a booby-trapped car exploded near the Turkish-occupied town of Ras al-Ayn in the northern countryside of Syria’s al-Hasakah.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the explosion targeted a headquarters of the Turkish-backed al-Rahman Corps in the town of Hwish Nasir. The group is a member of the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA).
“No information about casualties has been received, so far,” the monitoring group’s said in a report.
Car bomb attacks have been inflicting human losses on Turkish forces in northeast Syria for more than two months now.
A day earlier, an explosive-laden car exploded in an SNA headquarters in northern Raqqa, killing three Turkish service members and several Syrian militants, including an SNA commander.
Turkey had held the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG) responsible for most of these attacks. However, Ankara is yet to back its accusations with any evidence.
