Azaz: Seven people were killed in a car bomb explosion in a busy market in northern Syria. International media reports that several people were injured in an explosion in the city of Azaz in Aleppo province, which borders Turkey. It remains unclear who was behind the attack in Azaz, which is led by pro-Turkish rebels fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The blast happened when many people went to the market to buy new clothes for their children during the fasting month of Ramadan. The initial information coming out is that children were killed. Footage has already surfaced of buildings collapsing and many people lying injured. No organization has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Azaz is the seat of the Syrian interim government.

Syria's Interim Government is an opposition group that claims to be Syria's legitimate authority. Azaz on the border of Turkey is also a crucial place in issues such as goods distribution. Bomb attacks targeting civilians are frequent in the northwestern region of Syria. In 2017, more than 40 people were killed in a car bomb explosion in the city's court premises.
