BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – A car bomb attack has taken place at the town of Al-Bab in Aleppo province’s northern countryside which has left dozens of Turkish-backed rebels and civilians dead and wounded.

According to sources, the car bomb went off in the town center, resulting in the death of eight and the injuring of at least 20 others – specifics defining on how many of the casualties were rebels and how many were civilians have not yet been mentioned.

Turkish-backed rebels who control Al-Bab are blaming US-led Syrian Kurdish forces for the attack, saying that they did it in retaliation for the offensive on Afrin.

Sources on the ground report that the car bomb was parked well in advance at the scene where it exploded and that it was remotely detonated.

They attacked the Kurds first – they called the SDF terrorists to have an excuse for their attack – why are they surprised and complaining now?

Actually the kurds invaded Arab cities like tal rifat ,raqqa, manbij and tal abyad first and then stole syria’s oil it was only then Arabs and turkmen with turkish support responded.

“Responded” is not correct. “Took over” is the right verb, when you describe a squatter/invader being substituted with another squatter/invader.
In 2011-12, with SAA desperately holding the densely populated areas, the FSA occupied all they could. Then came Daesh + Nusra and swept FSA into oblivion, but that was not “responding” to the FSA occupation.
