Two people killed in car bomb attack in Afrin

Two people were killed and two others wounded in a car bomb attack on Tuesday in Afrin city of northwestern Syria, according to local sources.

A car bomb exploded at a checkpoint in Kafr Jannah village, east of Afrin city, the sources said.

The injured were transferred to hospitals in the district following the attack, which caused damage in the surrounding area.

At least 18 people were killed, including doctors, after shells hit the al Shiifa hospital in Afrin on Sunday, leaving the maternity ward and emergency room in ruins. 

Turkey’s military backed by Syrian opposition forces seized Afrin, a mainly Kurdish district, from the YPG in March 2018 in a major offensive.

Ankara views the YPG as a terrorist group linked to Kurdish militants on its own soil and has mounted military operations in northern Syria to push it back from the border.

 The ten-year-old conflict has killed about 500,000 people and displaced 13 million. (Zaman al-Wasl, Agencies)
