A twin bomb attack killed a child and wounded 20 other people in northern Syria on Tuesday, local sources stated.
The assailants detonated a motorcycle bomb and a car bomb at two separate locations in the Jarablus district of Aleppo province, Anadolu Agency (AA) reported.
The wounded were transferred to hospitals in the region.
Local security forces said they suspected that the PKK terrorist organization’s Syrian wing, the YPG, was behind the attacks.
The YPG has increased the frequency of its attacks, targeting the northwestern town of Jarablus, aiming to displace civilians living in the area. Since Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield, which liberated the area from Daesh rule, Jarablus has been targetted in many YPG attacks.
The YPG seized control of large swathes of land in the northern parts of the war-torn country with the Bashar Assad regime's blessing when clashes intensified in 2012.
Ankara considers the YPG, which was backed by the U.S.-led anti-Daesh coalition on the pretext of fighting the Daesh terrorist group on the ground, a grave national security threat.
Syria's war has killed more than 387,000 people and displaced millions since starting in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-regime protests.
