At least 60 people were killed and 50 others wounded in a car bomb explosion in rebel-held town of Azaz in northern Syria, according to medical sources. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor had reported, earlier, the death toll of 43 people.
SOHR said six rebels were among the dead, but most were believed to be civilians, adding that dozens of people had also been injured in the blast in the town near the Turkish border. Dozens were also wounded in the attack which struck in front of an Islamic courthouse where a market is located, the Observatory said. The group said the toll was likely to rise in the attack, which was the latest in a string of bombings to hit Azaz.
Daesh likely behind the attack
Daesh is suspected of being behind the attack but no statement has been released yet.
