Qamishli, Syria – On Tuesday, three members of the Kurdish security forces (Asayish) were injured in the town of Tirbespi (Qahtaniyah) in Hasakah province, northeastern Syria, when an explosion hit the Asayish security center in the town, locals reported.

Speaking to ARA News in Qahtaniyah, media activist Shiyar Nabi reported that the exposition was caused by a remotely detonated bomb placed by anonymous at the entrance of the Asayish security center in the town, wounding three members of the Kurdish security.

“The perpetuator was killed by the Asayish before fleeing the incident’s location,” he said.

“The wounded were transferred to al-Nour hospital in the nearby city of Qamishli (Qamishlo), some of them are in critical condition,” Nabi told ARA News.

Kurdish activists accused militants of the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) of being behind the attack.

The IS radical group has been in fight with the Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Asyaish for nearly three years. 

The Islamic State insurgents adopted on previous occasions several suicide attack operations against the YPG-held barriers and the Asayish centers in the area.
