Violent explosion in Afrin

Afrin was occupied by the Turkish army and allied mercenaries in March 2018.

A huge explosion has occurred at the Newroz Junction in central Afrin Friday afternoon. Details about the explosion were not immediately available.

The city had been shaken by an explosion on November 26 as well.

The attacks of the Turkish state against Afrin began on 20 January 2018 and the invasion of the city was carried out on 18 March 2018. Since the invasion, war crimes have been systematically committed in the region. Almost every day, crimes such as the confiscation of property belonging to local people, kidnapping of civilians for ransom, torture or executions are carried out.
