At least 7 wounded in terrorist attacks in N. Syria

Car bomb blasts target district centers of Afrin, al-Bab

AFRIN/AL-BAB, Syria 

At least seven people were wounded in separate car bomb attacks in northern Syria on Thursday. 

According to Anadolu Agency correspondent on the ground, the attacks targeted the district centers of al-Bab and Afrin, injuring five people.

The security forces suspect the attacks were carried out by the terror group YPG/PKK.

The terrorists also carried out mortar attacks on Inab village of Afrin. Two civilians sustained injuries due to attacks.

The YPG/PKK, which occupied Syria’s Tel Rifaat town, frequently targets Afrin, Azaz, al-Bab and Jarabulus regions.

Located between Afrin and Azaz, Tel Rifaat has been occupied by the YPG/PKK since 2016.

Some 250,000 Arabs from Tel Rifaat have sought shelter in Azaz camps, bordering Turkey.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU — has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK.
