At least three civilians were injured in a car bomb attack in northwestern Syria on Wednesday, according to local sources.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that an explosive-laden vehicle was detonated in Afrin district, causing the injuries, the sources said.

The explosion also caused material damage in the area.

Local security forces are evaluating the possibility that the YPG/PKK terror group might be behind the attack.

Afrin was largely cleared of YPG/PKK terrorists in 2018 through Turkey’s anti-terror offensive Operation Olive Branch, but the terror group still has sleeper cells.

The terror group, attacking from Syria’s adjacent Tal Rifaat and Manbij regions, often targets Jarabulus, Azaz, Afrin, and al-Bab.
