Eleven people, including 6 civilians, were killed in two explosions – two car bombs – targeting on Sunday two cities subject to the Syrian opposition, while Ankara held the PKK militants responsible for the two attacks.
Al-Jazeera correspondent reported that 6 civilians were killed and dozens were injured, as a result of a car bomb explosion in the city of Azaz, in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
He added that the explosion occurred near the headquarters of the Syrian Interim Government, affiliated with the opposition, in the city of Azaz, and resulted in widespread destruction of civilian property.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that among the dead was a girl, noting that the bombing took place near the Cultural Center in Azaz.
Later, a car bomb attack targeted a checkpoint of Syrian fighters in the city of Al-Bab in Idlib countryside.
Al-Jazeera correspondent reported that 6 members of the Syrian opposition forces were killed as a result of a car bomb explosion at one of its checkpoints in the city of Al-Bab, in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.
The two cities are controlled by the Syrian opposition forces supported by the Turkish army.
Ankara accused the PKK militants of being behind the bombings.
The Turkish Ministry of Defense stressed that there is no aim to organize the Workers’ Party “but to shed blood in northern Syria.” She said that the Workers’ Party “targeted the cities of Al-Bab and Azaz, a day after a terrorist attack in Afrin.”
“Those terrorists who kill our Syrian brothers with their inhuman attacks to undermine peace and confidence in the region, they end up being buried with their dreams in the pits they dug and drowning in the blood of the innocent that they shed,” she added in a statement.
The areas of northern Syria, which are controlled by the opposition forces, are witnessing car and bicycle explosions, and rarely any party claims responsibility for them.
Yesterday, Saturday, a car bombing killed 8 civilians, including 4 children, in Afrin, northwestern Syria.
