Rise in massacre death toll in blast of a car bomb of unknown origin in al Bab city in Aleppo suburbs on October 6

Toll of victims of al Bab city massacre rose to at least 20 civilians, including five children and a woman, in addition to injury of at least 30 others when 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 in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate on October 6, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses and survivors 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.
