US condemns terror attack in Syria, calls for ceasefire
Washington: The United States has strongly condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Syria and called for a ceasefire in the country. The spokesman of State Department, Morgan Ortagus said in a statement today that the United States is calling for a ceasefire in Syria.
A bomb blast near the northern Syrian city of Afrin has killed at least 40 people, including 11 children. Six Turkish-backed terrorists were among those killed in the blast. In Syria, Turkey along with its allied Syrian rebels is fighting with Kurdish fighters linked to the PKK. Turkey has also carried out several operations in Syria.
Significantly, in March 2018, Turkey and its allied Syrian rebels had taken Afrin area from the control of the Kurban fighters. According to human rights activists, governance in Turkish-controlled areas in northern Syria is poor.
