Several killed in a blast in Kurdish area in Qamishli

It is reported in an Iranian media that a powerful explosion hit an area near a military academy in a Kurdish-majority area of northeastern Syria, killing and injuring unknown number of people.

According local sources, the blast occurred in an area near the Kurdish district of Torbesi in the northeastern city of Qamishli. Some reports suggested that it was a car bomb attack.

Nobody claims the responsibility for the attack yet.

It is also reported that Kurdish parties are already in control of three administrations in Syria’s north near the Turkish border. The regions are known as

Afrin and Kobane, both in Aleppo Province and the region of Jazire in Hasakah Province are controlled by Kurdish parties.

Recently, the Kurds declared federalism in north of Syria, a move criticized by many.

For nearly five years, Syria has been observing a deadly conflict it blames on certain foreign states.  At least 470,000 people have been killed and millions have been displaced in the Arab country, according to a February report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research. The conflict has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure.

Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants.

The agreement was negotiated by Russia and the United States. Many suggest that Washington is among the main supporters of terrorists fighting against the Syrian government forces.
