    Agencies (Qasioun) - The Turkish Armed Forces found an explosive hidden inside a Quran by YPG militias in Afrin, northwestern Syria, security sources said on Thursday.

     

    An explosive hidden inside a copy of the Muslim holy book hanging on a wall was found in a house during security sweeps in the village of Shaykh Ubasi, in northwestern Afrin, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

     

    The sources also said security forces detonated the explosive safely with no loss of life.

     

    The misuse of a holy book to hide explosives follows similar incidents, including a March 14 attack that martyred a Turkish soldier.
