Jawadiya, Syria − On Wednesday, a suicide attack targetted a security barrier installed by the Asayish −Kurdish security forces linked to the Democratic Union Party in Syria (PYD)− near the village of Zakhira/Bab al-Hadid, east of Qamishli city.

According to sources in the village, the attack was carried out by a suicider linked to the al-Qaeda affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra.

“The suicider targetted the Asayish −Kurdish security forces of the PYD− barrier by a bombed car, killing two members of the Kurdish forces,” a source, preferred to stay anonymous, told ARA News on Wednesday.

Sources confirmed the death of two members of the Asayish forces and one of the villagers due to the explosion, leaving an unknown number of injuries.

“A suicide bomber blew himself up as he was driving a car near the barrier,” another eyewitness said.

After the incident, members of the Popular Protection Units (YPG) and the Asayish forces −Military and security armed wings of the PYD− intensified their patrols around the explosion area.

On Tuesday, a stronghold of the YPG was exposed to a mortar shelling and was fired by battalions of Jabhat al-Nusra in the village of Yusufiya, near the oil-rich city of Rumelan, northeastern Syria, resulting in the death of two members of the Kurdish forces; at least fifteen others were wounded, sources said.
