BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – A car bomb attack has taken place at the town of Al-Bab in Aleppo province’s northern countryside which has left dozens of Turkish-backed rebels and civilians dead and wounded.
According to sources, the car bomb went off in the town center, resulting in the death of eight and the injuring of at least 20 others – specifics defining on how many of the casualties were rebels and how many were civilians have not yet been mentioned.
Turkish-backed rebels who control Al-Bab are blaming US-led Syrian Kurdish forces for the attack, saying that they did it in retaliation for the offensive on Afrin.
Sources on the ground report that the car bomb was parked well in advance at the scene where it exploded and that it was remotely detonated.
