Car blast hits rebel-held north Syria

A car bomb exploded in a north Syrian town held by Turkey-backed rebels, killing at least 10 people, rescue workers and medics said, after a war monitor had reported blasts hitting other insurgent-held areas in the northwest. The blast was the largest in months to target Azaz, near the Turkish border. It struck a marketplace that was busy late in the evening after the daily Ramadan fast had finished. Turkey-backed Syrian rebels control a strip of territory along the frontier between the countries. It adjoins the enclave in northwest Syria that is the only major territory still held by groups fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and has been the target of a government offensive since late April.
