DAMASCUS, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- A car bomb went off in a Turkey-controlled town in northern Syria on Thursday, the latest in a string of explosions targeting Turkey-held areas in Syria, a war monitor reported.

The car bomb exploded in the town of Soluk in the countryside of Tal Abyad area in the northern province of Raqqa, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The explosion left massive damage and property losses with no information on casualties, the watchdog said.

On Jan. 30, two Turkish drivers were killed when a roadside bomb went off in the countryside of Tal Abyad.

On Jan. 16, seven Turkey-backed Syrian rebels were killed in a bombing in the town of Soluk.

No party has claimed responsibility for the bombings yet.

Turkey has captured several areas in the countryside of Raqqa and the northeastern province of Hasakah following a massive assault against the Kurdish militia in northern Syria in October last year.
