14 killed in car bomb blast in Turkish-controlled Syrian town

At least 14 people killed and multiple wounding in a car bomb blast in a Turkey administered northern Syrian town.

According to the International News Agency, 14 people were killed and 33 were injured in a car bomb explosion in a Syrian town on the border with Turkey.

As per media reports, the blast occurred in a crowded market in Tal Abyad, a town controlled by Turkish-backed opposition fighters.

Turkish defense ministry confirmed that 14 civilians were killed and around 20 others injured in the explosion.

It is to be noted that earlier this month, a car bomb blast ripped through a crowded market located in a Turkish-backed group controlled by the Turkish government in the northern Syrian city of Tal Abyad, killing 13 civilians and injuring 23.

Earlier Last month, Turkey moved ahead with its military operation against Kurdish fighters in northeast Syria.

The Turkey’s military operation came after the US President Trump’s announcement that America was withdrawing its troops from the region, leaving the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), its main ally in the battle against the Islamic State (ISIS) of Iraq and the Levant armed militant group, without US military support.

American President Donald Trump said that he is an “island of one” for removing US forces from northeastern Syria.

He further said that Middle East as a hopeless cause, despite years of American military involvement and financial investment and the America cannot fight “endless wars,” he added.

Turk President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the objective of military operation is to remove the Kurdish-led forces from the border area and create a “safe zone” so millions of Syrian refugees can be returned safely.
