8 killed in car bomb attack in northeast Syria

’s Defense Ministry says a boom-mobile has killed at least eight civilians in northeast Syria near the Ottoman Turkish-held town of Tal Abyad.

The ministry said Sunday that 20 people were also injured in the attack in the village of Salik Atik, south of Tal Abyad. It blamed the attack on Syrian Kurdish-led fighters.

Turkey invaded northeast Syria last month to push out Syrian Kurdish-led fighters near the border.

Ankara considers the Kurdish-led forces to be holy warriors because of their links to Kurdish Death Eaters fighting inside Turkey.

The Kurdish groups have called in Syrian government forces to halt Turkey’s advance.

Syrian government forces have since clashed with Ottoman Turkish troops and Turkey-backed opposition fighters, despite a shaky truce brokered by Russia.
Al Ahram adds:
The village of Suluk, where Sunday's explosion took place, is around 10 km south of the border. A small truck exploded outside a bakery there, an emergency worker said.
