Two children have lost their lives and their mother has sustained wounds in a bomb attack in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah, the state media reports.

An explosive device, planted in a car, went off in the vegetable market of Ras Al-Ayn town in Hasakah countryside on Saturday, Syria's official news agency SANA reported.

 

The blast caused material damage to the locals’ property.

Citing civil sources, the report said the explosion led to the killing and wounding of an unspecified number of Turkey-backed militants in the city.

Every so often, bomb attacks claim the lives of civilians in the strategic town, which has been under the occupation of Turkish troops and their allied militants for almost a year.

Ankara-backed militants were deployed to northern Syria in October 2019 after Turkish military forces launched a long-threatened cross-border invasion in a declared attempt to push the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militants away from border areas.
