A car bomb of so-far unknown origin exploded in a densely populated area in Othman Bin Affan street in the northeast of al Bab city, the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate, resulting in a massacre, injuring three medical personnel and destroying an ambulance affiliated with Syria Relief and Development (SRD) and transferring persons infected by COVID-19 pandemic which was at the explosion site. The ambulance went out of service on October 6, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain more details of the incident.
SNHR condemns all attacks of this nature which target and kill civilians and calls on the governing forces in each area to bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, and to conduct investigations into all such incidents and reveal their findings to the public. Stability will not be achieved in Syria without achieving a political transition towards democracy implemented according to a strict timetable.
