Car bomb goes off in Syria’s Qamishli
A car bomb exploded in Syria’s northeastern city of Qamishli on Sunday, state TV reported.
The car exploded near a high school in the Arbawiyeh neighborhood in the city amid reports of damage, said the report, spelling no further details.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the explosion left human losses as well.
Reports indicate that the city, which is largely controlled by the Kurdish militia in Hasakah Province, is in a state of lawlessness.
It’s not the first explosion that targets the city.
Last month, several people were wounded by three explosions that rocked the city.
The Islamic State, which has lost key areas to the Syrian Democratic Forces (DFF) in eastern Syria, has claimed responsibility for several explosions targeting the Kurdish-controlled areas.
The Syrian government repeatedly slammed the Kurdish control over areas in northeastern Syria, vowing to retake all areas controlled by the U.S.-backed Kurdish forces either by force or negotiations.
Pro-government and opposition activists recently reported eruption of protests against Kurdish forces in eastern Syria as the living conditions are tough there.
The Kurdish forces are seeking to create an autonomous region in predominantly Kurdish areas in northeastern Syria, which has been rejected by the government.
The Kurdish forces have made significant wins in the battles against the IS in eastern Syria with the help of the U.S.-led coalition, which made it a target of frequent explosions by the terrorist group.
