BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – On Wednesday, a huge car bomb attack targeted the Syrian city of Jarabulus, a key stronghold for Turkish-backed rebel groups, in Aleppo province’s northern countryside. The explosion has left about two dozen dead and injured.

According to reports, the car bomb hit a rebel policing checkpoint on the city’s outskirts. It is unclear if the vehicle was parked and then detonated or if it was driven by a jihadist operative as part of a suicide attack.

Sources on the ground say that at least six people where killed and another 15 injured – most are rebel fighters belonging to the Free Syrian Army.

On Tuesday, reports emerged of an explosion at a militant-held police station in the town of Al-Bab (another stronghold of Turkish-backed rebels in northern Aleppo) that left about a dozen dead and injured.

Seems that we still have IS in Turkish occupied areas.
They help the Sultan to refurbish the town.
