7 Killed As Deadly Car Bomb Hits Azaz Market In Syria

At least seven individuals lost their lives in a devastating car bombing that struck a bustling market in northern Syria.

The explosion, which occurred in the town of Azaz in Aleppo province near the Turkish border, also left several others wounded.

The perpetrators behind the attack remain unidentified in the town, which is governed by pro-Turkish militias engaged in combat against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Turkish military forces and their allied groups exert control over extensive swathes of Syrian territory along the shared border between the two nations.

At the time of the explosion, the market was teeming with shoppers purchasing new clothing for their children ahead of Eid al-Fitr, the festival marking the conclusion of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan next month.

According to reports from the White Helmets, a volunteer rescue organization operating in Syria, among the casualties were two children.

Footage capturing the aftermath depicted bodies strewn across the ground, structures marred by damage, and a vehicle engulfed in flames.

No entity has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Azaz serves as the headquarters for the Syrian Interim Government, an opposition faction asserting its legitimacy as the country’s governing authority.

Strategically positioned amidst the backdrop of the civil war, the town holds significance due to its proximity to the Turkish border and its role as a vital supply route.

Incidents of bombings targeting densely populated civilian areas are regrettably common in Syria’s northwestern border region, with Azaz being no exception.

In a tragic incident in 2017, over 40 individuals lost their lives when a car bomb was detonated outside the town’s courthouse.

The Islamic State group, which seized control of the town in 2013 before its brief tenure, claimed responsibility for that attack.
