Tal Abyad city in Raqqa countryside has witnessed for the second time this week – a car bomb explosion that resulted in civilian casualties and material damage.

According to the sources “the new bombing occurred near the main market in central Tel Abyad, wounding 3 civilians were wounded of varying severity, before gunmen of the Turkish-backed armed factions, who control the city, arrest a person, who they claimed to be responsible for carrying out the bombing, but there was no confirmed information about the truth in these allegations.

This new blast came about two days after an earlier bomb attack on the same market, which resulted in 19 civilian casualties and the injuring of 29 others as a result of a car bomb parked near a gas station in the center of Tel Abyad.

The Turkish army and the armed factions supported by it took control of the city of Tal Abyad in the countryside of Raqqa, on the thirteenth of last October, after fierce battles with the “SDF”, where these clashes coincided with intense artillery and rocket attacks, which led then to having dozens of civilians killed and wounded.
