Explosion Rocks SDF Headquarters In Southern Al-Hasakah (Video)


A booby-trapped motorcycle exploded near the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) headquarters in the town of Markadah in southern al-Hasakah on July 10.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that four people, including a child, were injured as a result of the explosion.

As expected, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack through its news agency, Amaq. The terrorist group claimed that seven fighters of the SDF were killed or injured in the explosion, contradicting the SOHR’s report.

Located between the southern al-Hasakah countryside and the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, Markadah is one of the key towns in Syria’s eastern region. In the last few months, the town witnessed increasing activity of ISIS cells.

While the bombing appears to be a failure, it will likely force the SDF to step up its security measures. Kurdish sources are already reporting that the group is implementing a motorcycle-ban in sensitive regions.

    about time the sdf is finished and thus the connectionwith the ever evil squatters on occupied palestinian land. Squatters should be aware of the risk of being found on occupied land, which just might result in a quick process of lopping off heads. not a minute too soon, should the situation arise.

        don’t make you more stupid than you are – crimea is russian. I’m looking on a map of 1906 and there is no ukraine in sight but a lot of russia, and of austria and of the german reich. should tell you that ukraine is a figment on some people’s brains, nothing else.

        want me to explain ‘figment’ or spell out the meaning of certain words that can be hard to understand for die untermench, such like yourself.

            well well, your logic fails you and the rationale of whatever you say is nowhere to be found – kindergarten thinking.

            would you like me to explain the difficult words – such as logic and rationale. or maybe even kindergarten and thinking!

    One thing about Isis they don’t usually exaggerate enemy casualty numbers, but the SDF do lie about their own casualty numbers, and the SOHR is the biggest source of misinformation you can possibly find, especially concerning civilian casualty numbers [they’re always exaggerated or false], so the most believable part of the story for me is what Isis is saying, 7 SDF killed or injured with no civilian casualties, unless I read confirmation of the other asserted facts from other unbiased sources.
