A car bomb explosion at an area near a border crossing between Syria and Turkey has left about a dozen people injured, reports say.

According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the explosion took place at the main entrance to the Bab al-Hawa border crossing with neighboring Turkey, on Tuesday.

“A car bomb hit the main gateway to the Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey,” the Britain-based group said.

The crossing located in Syria’s northwestern Idlib Province has been under the control of foreign-backed militants since last year.

Local reports say the blast has caused a number of injuries.

A blast also rocked the same crossing back in February, killing a number of people.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011.

According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad.

The United Nations also said more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced due to the violence.
