Qamishli, Syria− Two car bomb attacks hit on Thursday the city of Sere Kaniye/Ras al-Ain in Hasakah province in northeastern Syria. At least 10 civilians were killed during the attacks. 

Farhad Ayyo, local activist based in Sere Kaniye city, told ARA News that one of the explosions took place at the eastern entrance of the city in the al-Sinaa area near Bin Zaid Primary School, while the other occurred Tel Hallaf area in the city’s eastern suburb.

“Al-Sinaa attack resulted in the death of three civilians and injury of several others, including children. While the second car bomb killed at least 7 people in Tel Hallaf,” Ayyo said. 

According to local sources, the Kurdish Assayish forces −affiliated with the Democratic Union Party (PYD)− surrounded both locations of Thursday’s attacks. 

“The injured were taken to hospitals in Qamishli and Darbasiyah,” Ayyo added. 

Kurdish activists accused the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group (ISIL) of carrying out the attacks against the Kurdish areas in Sere Kaniye. However, ISIL didn’t adopt the attacks.
