The Syrian civil defense said that four civilians were killed and nine others injured in a motorcycle explosion in the town of Afrin on Thursday. The bombing came just one day after a string of bombings hit towns and villages in northern rural Aleppo.
The civil defense said that the death toll is likely to rise as several of the injuries are in critical condition. Activists pointed out that unknown young men had been spotted parking the motorbike in front of a bakery in the Rajo Street before leaving.
President of the Syrian Coalition, Abdurrahman Mustafa, on Thursday said that the terrorist bombings that rocked towns in northern rural Aleppo on Wednesday aimed to spread chaos and instability and instill fear in the areas that provide protection to civilians.
President Mustafa stressed that these attacks are “evidence of the inability and lack of options for sponsors of terrorism.” He continued: “Nothing can break the Syrian people’s will to regain freedom and bring all criminals to justice, nor will anyone succeed in derailing the revolution from its goals to topple the tyrannical, murderous regime.”
“The ongoing crimes against the Syrian people must stop,” President Mustafa added. He stressed that that the Syrian Coalition and the Free National Army will spare no effort to defeat “sponsors of terror and their cronies.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
