The military council of Mabij said in a statement on Thursday that more than 20 civilians were killed, as well as four Americans, in a big explosion in the center of the north Syrian town on Wednesday, and that a cell of 7 terrorists, “acting in concert with Turkish intelligence” had been arrested. A large number of weapons and ammunition, including grenades, Kalashnikov assault rifles and M6 rifles was seized during searches. The blast was detonated by a suicide bomber on the town’s high street as a US military patrol was passing by. The attack was initially claimed by Daesh.
