Car bomb kills 11 civil­ians in Syria

The Korea Times - - WORLD -

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.
