Hasakah, Syria – Militant fighters of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) blew up the house of Syrian Parliament’s member Hamid Karko Jassim in the village of Kabirat al-Karko of the town of Tel Brak (42 km northeastern Hasakah) on charges of supporting the Syrian regime, pro-regime media sources reported on Friday. 

An eyewitness from the town of Tel Brak told ARA News that the IS militants bombed the house of Syrian Parliamentary Hamid Jassim “as he was an active participant in pro-regime activities in Hasakah in the recent months”. 

“Jassim’s house was empty when it was bombed, but the group wanted to send him and his peers a message that they’re not welcome anymore in the IS-held areas,” the source said. 

Jassim recently participated in events organized by the regime in the city of Hasakah including regime’s meetings with tribal leaders. 

The village of al-Karko (10 km northwestern the town of Tel Brak) is held by the IS group.

The Islamic State insurgents had recently blown up a number of houses belonging to the pro-regime figures in Hasakah city, accusing them of “spying for the benefit of the Syrian regime”.  

The group had also bombed the house of Fahmi Abbas in January 4, 2015, after accusing him of supporting the Syrian regime. In January 14, the IS militants bombed the house of the tribal leader of al-Bushekh clan (Baggara) Sheikh Adnan Ali Jadaan, a member of the tribal council and the Arab tribes of the Ministry of National Reconciliation of the Syrian regime.
