Car bomb hits Syria's Azaz

A car bomb blast hits the Siccu village of Syrian town of Azaz on November 08, 2018.

Another attack earlier the same day failed to cause any casualties.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for either attack.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
