Sharjah24 – AFP: Car bombs killed at least 12 people, including seven civilians, in two separate incidents in Turkish-held northern Syria on Sunday, a monitoring group said.
The first attack near a cultural centre in the town of Azaz killed seven civilians, including a young girl, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in an updated toll.

The Observatory said around 30 people were also wounded in the attack. 

In the second incident, a car bomb targeted a checkpoint manned by pro-Ankara rebels near the town of Al-Bab, killing five fighters, the Observatory added.

Such bombings regularly hit areas of northern Syria held by Turkish forces and their Syrian proxies.
