A car bomb has exploded in the northern Syrian city of Azaz, located 20 miles north-northwest of Aleppo, claiming the lives of three people, Sky News Arabia reported on Saturday.
Azaz was captured by Daesh* in October 2013; however, militants of the Free Syrian Army took the city in February 2014. Currently, Azaz is controlled by the Free Syrian Army, which also opposes the Syrian government in Damascus.
The situation in the region remains tense, as the Syrian government has liberated the southern regions of the country, while the north, particularly in Idlib province, continues to be a stronghold of insurgency against Damascus.
*Daesh, also known as IS/ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State, is a terror organization, banned in Russia
