At least 12 civilians were killed and dozens injured on Sunday in a car bomb attack in the town of Çobanbey in Syria’s Aleppo province near the Turkish border, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency.

The town has been controlled by Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces since early 2017.

The explosion took place at a car park near Çobanbey Hospital, about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from Turkey.

Search and rescue efforts are ongoing as the hospital and several nearby houses were destroyed.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
