Massacre caused by violent explosion of unknown cause and origin in Afrin city in Aleppo suburbs on January 30

At least five civilians, including three children, were killed, while 29 others were injured, in a violent blast, whose cause and origin is so far unknown, which took place on January 30, 2021, near the industrial zone in Afrin city in the northern suburbs of Aleppo governorate. 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 controlling 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.
