At least 11 civilians were wounded in a bomb attack carried out by the YPG/PKK terror group in the northern Syrian city of al-Bab, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said Sunday.
In a statement, the ministry said the terrorist group targeted the city in the Operation Euphrates Shield area.
At least 11 innocent civilians were injured, one of them critically, it added.
Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terrorist operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of locals: Euphrates Shield in 2016, Olive Branch in 2018 and Peace Spring in 2019.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
