At least 9 people killed in car bomb attacks in Syria’s Raqqah

Press TV – At least nine civilians, including children, have been killed and a number of others wounded after two explosives-laden vehicles exploded in Syria’s northern city of Raqqah.

Syrian state-run television announced on Tuesday that the blasts were carried out in Basel Street earlier in the day, adding that a mine also went off at the same time near the vehicles.

It added that the terror attacks against civilians had been carried out by remnants of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group, which has received a complete defeat in the Arab country and has lost all the strongholds and territories once controlled.

Additionally on Tuesday, suspected members of the Takfiri Ansar al-Tawheed group attacked an army checkpoint in Taybat al-Imam, north of Hama city in the northwestern parts of the Arab country.

Terrorists detonated their explosive vests as they came very close to the checkpoint. The explosions both killed all the terrorists and at least three soldiers of the Syrian army.

According to Syria’s state-run media, terrorists had disguised themselves as farmers to get as close as possible to the checkpoint.
