The YPG/PKK was behind an attack in northern Syria Saturday which killed at least 18 civilians and wounded 27, said Turkey’s National Defense Ministry.

"Inhumane and uncivilized PKK/YPG terrorists continue to target innocent civilians using the same methods as Daesh,” said the ministry on Twitter, with a video of the bombing’s aftermath.


The attacks came from two bomb-laden vehicles in the bus station in the al-Bab district, an area cleared by Turkey of terrorists in 2016, according to sources on the ground. 

The explosions also burned a large number of vehicles and damaged nearby buildings.
