Car bombs killed 11 people including six civilians in two separate incidents in Turkish-held northern Syria on Sunday, a monitoring group said.
The first attack near a cultural centre in the town of Azaz killed six civilians including a young girl, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
An AFP reporter at the scene saw a mangled car ablaze, black smoke billowing into the sky.
A man rushed away from the site of the blast, carrying what appeared to be a child wrapped in a bloodied cloth.
In the second incident, a car bomb targeted a checkpoint of pro-Ankara rebels near the town of Al-Bab, killing five fighters, the Observatory added.
Areas of northern Syria held by Turkish forces and their Syrian proxies are regularly rocked by such bombings.
On Saturday, explosives planted in another vehicle took the lives of eight civilians including four children in the city of Afrin.
