Explosions heard near Al-Bab and Jarablus in northern Syria (Video)

Last month, the United States carried out airstrikes against facilities presumably used by “Iran-backed” militias in eastern Syria as a retaliation for the 15 February rocket attack on US troops in Iraq.

Explosions were heard near Al-Bab and Jarablus in northern Syria, the country’s Ekhbariya TV reported on Friday.

A video allegedly from the area affected by the explosions emerged online, suggesting it was a missile that caused the blast.

​According to The Insider, the explosion occurred after a ballistic missile hit oil tankers outside Manbij.
