18 Syrian locals killed after YPG car bomb hits al-Bab district

Abomb attack killed scores of people in the northern Syrian town of al-Bab near the Turkish border on Saturday.

The explosions also burned a large number of vehicles and damaged nearby buildings.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that scores of civilians were killed on Saturday in the explosion.

Different casualty figures are common in the immediate aftermath of such explosions.
