BEIRUT – A car bomb at a border crossing on the Turkish-Syrian border Monday afternoon killed 10 people and left dozens injured, according to Turkey's semi-official Anatolian news agency.
The blast occurred at the Cilvegozu Border Gate on the Turkish side of the border. It connects Turkey with Syria's Bab Al-Hawa crossing, which has been in the hands of Syrian rebels for months.
The explosives were in a parked vehicle with Syrian license plates, the news agency reported.
Opposition activists inside Syria were divided over who was behind the attack and whether or not the target was the Syrian opposition or Turkey.
A Syrian pro-government news group on Facebook, Green Edleb News Network, based in Idlib province in northwestern Syria, reported that the attack was a targeted operation by Syrian intelligence, which planted explosives in a transport truck carrying ammunition into the country.
