15 injured in bomb attack in northern Syria: Source tells Anadolu

Fifteen victims were injured Saturday in a bombing terror attack in the Afrin district in northern Syria, a source told Anadolu. The bomb in the cargo bed of a freight truck in the town center of Afrin, which is under the control of rebels in northern Syria, was detonated while the vehicle was traveling on the Azez road, said the source. Initial reports indicate the victims were injured near the checkpoint to the entrance to the town center. Security forces, increasing measures in the area of the explosion, have initiated an investigation into the attack. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The town center of Afrin was liberated from PKK/YPG terrorists in March 2018 as part of the Olive Branch Operation by Trkiye. Source: EN - Anadolu Agency
