Syrian local sources announced the killing of seven people, including two children, as a result of a car bomb explosion in the city of Ras al Ain in the northwestern countryside of Hasaka on Saturday evening.
A medical source in the city in Hasaka governorate in northeastern Syria said that 7 people, including two children, were killed, and more than 15 others were wounded in a car bomb explosion at the southern entrance to Ras al Ain.
“Most of the wounded were transferred to Ras Al Ain National Hospital, and others were taken to private clinics,” added the medical source, who requested anonymity to German News Agency (dpa).
The source expected that the number of wounded would be more than the number that arrived at the hospital, as more than five homes close to the site of the explosion were partially or completely collapsed due to the severity of the explosion.
In addition, local residents in the city of Ras al Ain described in statements to the German News Agency (DPA) the explosion as very large and considered one of the largest explosions that occurred in the city due to the collapse of nearby houses and damage to more than 13 vehicles that were in the area of the explosion.
The city of Ras al Ain witnessed 4 bombings this month, and more than 16 bombings since the Syrian opposition factions loyal to Turkey took control of the city nearly a year ago, during which dozens were killed and wounded.
