Syria suicide bombing kills 10 Kurdish fighters

Damascus, Aug 19 (IANS) At least 10 Kurdish fighters were killed on Wednesday when a suicide car bomb ripped through their position in northeastern Syria, a media group reported.

The Islamic State (IS) militant group carried out the suicide car bombing at one of the positions of the Kurdish security forces in Syria’s northeastern city of Qamishli, sending plumes of smoke billowing over the area, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

Qamishli-based activists said a red truck exploded near a position of the Kurdish fighters in the al-Antariyeh district in Qamishli, leaving many civilians, who work in a nearby industrial city, wounded.

Kurdish fighters of the People’s Protection Units, who are backed by the US-led coalition, have been making strides in their battle against the IS in predominantly Kurdish areas in northern Syria along the border with Turkey.
