Qamishli – An explosion hit Syria’s northeastern city of Qamishli on Monday evening, causing casualties among Kurdish security forces, officials said.

At least one Kurdish Asayish officer was killed and two others wounded when their car exploded in the Sabaa Bahrat neighborhood of Qamishli.

Security sources told ARA News that the blast was caused by the detonation of an improvised explosive device that was apparently attached to an Asayish vehicle.

“Some terrorists had attached an explosive device to the car, and detonated it in the evening on Monday,” an Asayish spokesman said.

“Asayish officer Qehreman Omari lost his life in the blast, while the injured were transferred to Razi Hospital in Qamishli for treatment,” the official told ARA News.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the incident. However, Kurdish activists accused ISIS of conducting the bombing.
