Blast at Orthodox Church in Ras Al-‘Ayn, Syria

On Sunday evening, a female suicide bomber detonated an explosive belt in front of the St. George Orthodox Church in the city of Ras Al-‘Ayn, killing and wounding several civilians. According to local activists, the woman was reportedly a displaced Syrian from the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa Governorate – her identity was not revealed.

Ras Al-‘Ayn is currently under the control of the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) and their political wing “Democratic Union Party” (PYD); this city has been the target of several attacks by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) and Turkish Army.
