Syria: Car bomb kills 2 civilians in Afrin, injures 10
Local security forces claim YPG/PKK terrorist group could be behind blast

By Omer Koparan

AZAZ, Syria (AA) - At least two civilians were killed and 10 others were injured on Tuesday in a car bomb attack in Syria's northwestern city of Afrin.

An explosive-laden vehicle detonated in a crowded place in the Jinderes town of the city.

The explosion caused material damage as well.

Local security forces claimed the YPG/PKK terrorist group could be behind the blast.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The terrorist YPG is the PKK's Syrian branch.

In January of last year, Turkey launched a major military offensive -- Operation Olive Branch -- with the stated aim of purging Afrin of YPG/PKK terrorist elements.

On March 18 of last year, the 58th day of the operation, Afrin was liberated by Turkish troops backed by FSA fighters.
