AZAZ, Syria (AA) – A car bomb attack killed at least one person in northern Syria on Tuesday, local sources said.
The bomb, which was planted in a vehicle, exploded in the Syrian opposition-held city of Azaz.
Security forces launched an investigation into the attack, focusing on the possibility that it was planned by the PKK.
The group, operating from Syria’s adjacent Tal Rifaat and Manbij regions, often carries out attacks in Jarabulus, Azaz, Afrin, and al-Bab.
Since 2016, Turkiye has launched a trio of anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
