DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:00 P.M.) – Huge explosion ripped through the city of Azaz in northern Aleppo, killing and injuring scores and causing material damage.

According to local sources, a car parked near the main bus station in the city exploded this morning. Casualties reported.

Located roughly 32 km northwest of Aleppo, Azaz is controlled by Turkish-backed rebel groups who have been fighting the Islamic State under ‘Operation Euphrates Shield’.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. However, opposition forces accused the Kurdish militants of carrying out the explosion.

Turkey has recently deepened influence in Azaz by issuing new IDs linked to the Turkish government.
