A booby-trapped car exploded in the afternoon of October 11 in the northern Syrian city of Qamishli on the border with Turkey.
According to the Hawar News Agency (ANHA), the explosion took place near al-Omari restaurant in Munir Habibi street in the city’s center.
“According to the initial information obtained by our correspondent, the explosion resulted in the death of a civilian and the injury of three others,” the news agency reported.
Qamishli’s city center is controlled by the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). However, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) maintains key positions, including the border crossing north of the city and the airport to the west of it.
Two days ago, the Turkish military began shelling the city in the framework of Operation Peace Spring. So far, several civilians, including children, have been killed or injured.
Local activists believe that ISIS was behind the car bomb attack. Some activists said that the terrorist group is taking advantage of the Turkish attack to reactivate its cells inside the border city.
