A car carrying explosives explodes in northern Syria, killing 18 and injuring 75 on October 7 at 10:34 a.m.
On June 6, a car carrying explosives exploded in a town in northern Syria, where civil war continues, killing 18 people and injuring 75 others, according to human rights groups.
A car carrying explosives exploded in the heart of the northern Syrian town of Barb on June 6, killing 18 people and injuring 75 others, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is gathering information about the civil war.
Human rights monitors point out that the death toll is likely to increase because some people have heavy injuries.
In the video from the site, a large number of people, including volunteer Civil Defense personnel, gather around the heavily collapsed building to see how they are rescuing injured people from the rubble.
Barb is currently under substantial control of neighboring Turkey, and Turkey’s Anatolian news agency, according to investigators, has reported the possibility of a crime by an opposing Kurdish militant group, but so far there has been no statement claiming the crime.
In Syria, there has been no major fighting since Turkey, which backs rebels, and Russia, which backs the Assad regime, agreed on a ceasefire in March.
However, there have been sporadic clashes, mainly in the northern region where insurgents remain, and there have been a number of such explosions that have killed civilians, and the deterioration of security is becoming more serious.
