At least one civilian has been killed and nearly two dozen others sustained injuries after a car bomb blast struck near a medical center in Syria’s northwestern province of Aleppo.
Local sources, requesting not to be named, said the incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon in the city of Azaz, roughly 32 kilometers (20 miles) northwest of Aleppo, killing a 10-year-old girl and wounding 20 others.
A health official said the death toll may rise as some of the injured were in critical condition.
The sources added that the explosion caused the closure of Ibn Zaidun primary school, and caused extensive damage to a number of houses and shops nearby.
On October 6, at least five people, including two children, were killed in a car bomb attack in the same Syrian town.
