A bomb blast on Sunday evening rocked the Kurdish city of Afrin in northwest Syria, killing at least one and injuring four others.
A source from the city told BasNews on condition of anonymity that the explosion was carried out via an improvised explosive device (IED) placed in a waste container on Jindiris street of Afrin.
“A 10-year-old Kurdish boy was killed by the explosion and four others were wounded,” the source said.
BasNews has learned that those injured are from the same family.
Afrin is a Kurdish city that has been under the control of the Turkish army and Ankara-backed Islamist militias since early 2018.
Today’s explosion has not yet been claimed by any group or organization.
