Car bomb kills 11 civilians in Syria
BEIRUT (AFP) — A car bomb near a hospital in a town held by Turkey-backed Syrian rebels in northern Syria killed 11 civilians on Sunday, a monitor said.
The blast struck in Al-Rai near the Turkish border, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing near the town’s entrance, the second such deadly blast in the wider rebel-held area since June.
A member of the rebel security forces, Osama Abu al-Kheir, told AFP that a refrigerator truck blew up outside a healthcare center.
The deputy head of the town council, Alaa al-Hammad, said the truck appeared to have been detonated by remote control.
