A car bombing in northern Syria’s bustling market in Azaz has resulted in the deaths of at least seven individuals. The attack, which also left several others injured, occurred in Aleppo province near the Turkish border. The perpetrators behind this assault on the town, under the administration of pro-Turkish militias opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, remain unidentified. Turkish forces and their allies maintain control over extensive territories along the shared border with Syria.

The market was bustling with shoppers purchasing clothing for their children in anticipation of Eid al-Fitr, the festival marking the conclusion of Ramadan next month, when the bomb detonated. Among the casualties reported by the White Helmets, a volunteer rescue group, were two children. Images from the scene depict the aftermath, with bodies strewn across the ground, buildings damaged, and a burning car wreck.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, Azaz is significant strategically in the Syrian conflict due to its proximity to the Turkish border and its role as a crucial supply route. Bombings targeting densely populated civilian areas, such as Azaz, are unfortunately not uncommon in the northwest border region of Syria.
