Qamishli, Syria– On Tuesday, a bomb exploded in the city center of Qamishli city in northeastern Syria. At least two members of the Syrian security forces were wounded.
Ayaz Khalil, a media activist based in Qamishli city, told ARA News that the explosion targeted a regime checkpoint near the Arab Cultural Center in the city −a district known for tight security protection.
“Beside the injury of two security members, the bomb caused large material damage in the district,” Khalil said.
Tuesday’s explosion in Qamishli city is not adopted yet by any party.
“The regime forces −backed by militants of the National Defence− surrounded the explosion’s location and blocked all the roads leading to it, amid intensified inspections,” Khalil told ARA News.
Noteworthy, the city of Qamishli has recently seen several suicidal bombings carried out by the Qaeda splinter group of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) against headquarters and checkpoints of the Kurdish forces of the Popular Protection Units (YPG), beside other bombings which targeted checkpoints of the Syrian regime forces and the National Defence militia. The bombings −which were adopted by the ISIL group− claimed lives of dozens, including civilians.
