BEIRUT — A car bomb killed at least 13 people and wounded dozens Sunday night near a mosque in a northern Syrian town held by Turkey-backed fighters, Syrian opposition activists said.
The blast in the town of Azaz occurred Sunday as scores of people were leaving the mosque of Maytam, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The Observatory said the blast killed at least 14 people. It said the dead included four children.
The Azaz Media Center, a local activist collective, reported at least 13 deaths, along with many others wounded.
The blast occurred after the “iftar” meal that breaks a daylong fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
