Syrian Kurdish media reported on the 26th local time that a suicide bombing occurred in the city of Taylor Abyyed in the Turkish-Syrian border area in northern Syria that day, killing one civilian and injuring four others.
According to Syrian state news agencies, suicide bombers detonated a bomb tied to themselves near a vegetable store in the center of Taylor Abyad, causing many casualties at the scene.
The city of Taylor Abyed is under the jurisdiction of Raqqa Province in northern Syria. In October 2019, Turkey launched a military operation against northern Syria, crossing the border against Syrian Kurdish forces.
Several northern Syrian border cities, including Taylor Abyad, were occupied by Turkey and its support of the Syrian opposition during this military operation. Since then, various attacks have been frequent in the Taylor Abyad area, and the security situation there has deteriorated.
Syrian media believe that the frequent bombing attacks in many areas in northern Syria occupied by Turkey and its support by the Syrian opposition forces are caused by factional strife within the Syrian opposition forces, which in turn affects the local population.
