Vehicle bomb kills dozens after Isis driven out of Syrian town
A bomber attacked Turkish-backed rebels just hours after they hailed the village's capture from the terror group. "There were bodies everywhere".
On Thursday, rebels fighting under the Free Syrian Army banner declared al-Bab, located just 25 kilometers (15 miles) south of the Turkish border, liberated from IS after more than two months of fighting.
A source close to Euphrates Shield said the rebels had yet to conduct minesweeping operations to clear out booby traps and explosives as well as sleeper cells left behind by Islamic State, and to begin bringing back basic services to the war-torn town.
Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield on August 24, 2016, declaring that it was exercising its right to self-defense codified under U.N. Charter Article 51.

"Almost all of al-Bab is under control now, and a sweep operation is ongoing", Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Işık told reporters in the Aegean coastal city of Izmir.
The Syrian army succeeded recently to besiege al-Bab from its southern edge, a move to prevent IS fighters to withdraw toward other stronghold in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, the de facto capital of IS.
Sousian is behind rebel lines about 8km northwest of al-Bab, around which Ankara has long supported the formation of a security zone it says would help to stem a wave of migration via Turkey into Europe. He added that those who remain "are very risky people".
A fragile ceasefire between government forces and non-jihadist rebels has been in force since late December, brokered by regime ally Russian Federation and rebel backer Turkey. With its support, the rebels launched an offensive to take Al-Bab past year.
The offensive continued on Friday amid air strikes by the US-led coalition in the region, hitting Isis targets in al-Bab, Raqqa, Deir Ezzor, al-Shadaddi and near Palmyra. United Nations mediator Staffan de Mistura was holding bilateral meetings with the parties Friday to "decide on a work plan", the United Nations reports.
