A truck broke out in front of a bakery in the Syrian village of Suluk, located southeast of Tel Abyad on Sunday, according to the Turkish military and local officials, RT reported.
Turkish military immediately blamed Kurdish militias for the attack.
This is yet another month’s attack with many casualties and injuries near Tel Abyad.
Ankara launched a military offensive in northeastern Syria in early October, targeting Kurdish-led militias, believed to be terrorists.
The Syrian army has repeatedly clashed with Turkish soldiers and Turkey-backed opposition forces. Moscow mediates a ceasefire in northern Syria, but sporadic clashes continue.
13 people were killed by a car bomb on a market in Tel Lunch
13 people are the victims of an attack in Tel Abyad, which is currently under the control of the Turkish army and Syrian Free Army fighters, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said.
“As a result of the explosion of a car full of explosives on the market in downtown Tel Abyad, 13 civilians were killed and another 20 injured,” the ministry said.
They blame the Kurdistan Workers’ Party and the people’s self-defense forces, which have been recognized by terrorist organizations in Ankara.
Fierce fighting between the Syrian army and Turkey
Syrian public media have reported fierce fighting between government forces and Turkish troops in the northern part of the country, the AP reported.
SANA reports a machine-gun fire in the village of Um Shayf near Ras al-Ain.
Last month, Turkey launched an operation in northeastern Syria to push Syrian Kurds from the border. The Kurds called on the Syrian army to stop Ankara’s invasion.
The Syrian army has repeatedly clashed with Turkish soldiers and Turkish-backed opposition forces. Moscow mediates a ceasefire in northern Syria, but sporadic clashes continue.
Last week, Turkish forces captured 18 Syrian soldiers in the area and released them several hours later after Russian intervention.
Turkish and Russian forces conduct joint patrols in northeastern Syria to monitor the implementation of an agreement between Moscow and Ankara after Turkey launched an offensive a month ago against Syrian Kurds, viewed by the Turks as a threat to the country’s national security.
