Car bomb targets former Islamic State stronghold Tabqa in Syria
Affected Countries: syria;
A powerful explosion on Wednesday rocked a town in northeast Syria, local sources told VOA.
The car bomb attack, which took place on a main street near the center of Tabqa, wounded at least two security personnel and one civilian, the sources said.
“There are definitely more casualties, but we don’t have any details yet as local security forces have blocked the entire area,” a Tabqa-based aid worker who requested anonymity for security reasons told VOA.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Islamic State terror group has carried out similar attacks in the past against U.S.-backed forces in the town and elsewhere in northeast Syria.
