The EU on Wednesday condemned a recent terrorist attack carried out by the YPG/PKK in the market of Afrin, northwestern Syria.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
"Such intolerable acts of terrorism can never be justified. Those responsible must be held accountable," the spokesperson of the EU's External Action Service, Peter Stano said in a statement.
At least 40 civilians, including 11 children, were killed and nearly 50 others severely injured when a bomb-rigged fuel tanker exploded in the center of Afrin, close to Turkey's border, on Tuesday.
The statement offered condolences to the victims' families and wished quick recovery to the wounded, reiterating the bloc's call for a nationwide cease-fire in Syria.
