"The United States strongly condemns the terrorist attack near a crowded traffic circle in al-Bab yesterday," US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement, adding that other reports indicated more than 20 people were killed. "We are deeply troubled by the rise in such terrorist attacks in recent months."
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reacted on Twitter, condemning the attack in al Bab, and reaffirming the US position.
