At least eight people died and 65 others were injured in a car bomb attack in a Syrian village near the Turkish border on Sunday, the Syrian Human Rights Observatory reports.
The London-based agency and whistleblowers in the Arab country have reported extensively that the event took place in Saju village, near the Bab al Salama border post, before adding that several of the wounded are in serious condition. .
The attack, whose authorship was not claimed, was carried out days after Ankara-backed Turkish and rebellious intelligence agencies launched operations against cells of the region’s jihadist group Islamic State.
The Islamic State had previously assumed responsibility for the murder of an official in the city of Al Bab, who was controlled by the Turkish armed forces and the rebels he supported.
On the other hand, the observatory has stated that three suspected jihadists were killed this Monday in Aleppo province in an attack by a drone that is believed to belong to the international coalition led by the United States.
