Explosion on the Syrian-Turkish border. 7 people killed and 30 injured

Residents and rescue workers told Reuters that at least 7 people were killed and 30 injured in a car explosion in the opposition-controlled Syrian town of Azaz, near the Turkish border.

Residents and workers pointed out that the explosion occurred during the peak evening shopping period after breakfast.

In this context, Yassin Shalabi, who was shopping with his family near the site of the explosion, said, “The timing of the incident came during a heavy crowd of shoppers.”

So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the incident, knowing that the town, which is inhabited by an Arab majority and is under the control of Syrian opposition groups supported by Turkey and opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has witnessed relative calm since it witnessed a car explosion more than two years ago.

In the past few years, major towns in the North-West Frontier Region have been repeatedly subjected to bombings in crowded civilian areas.

The Civil Defense Forces said that at least 30 people were injured, adding that some of them were seriously injured and were taken to local hospitals.

Residents and opposition forces in predominantly Arab northwest Syria have long suspected the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG), which controls large swaths of territory in northeastern Syria and east of the Euphrates in northern Syria.

Meanwhile, others blame pro-Damascus groups.
