Daesh Car Bomb Kills 5 in Northeast Syria

A car bombing claimed by Daesh killed five people, including three children, in a militant-held town in northeast Syria.

The explosive-rigged vehicle detonated in Al-Qahtaniya, a town in Hasakah province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor.

It said the car bomb exploded near the town’s post office.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the blast but the Daesh group routinely claims attacks in northeast Syria, despite its territorial defeat earlier this year.

Regime news agency also reported the bombing, saying it killed several people, including children, when Regime loyalists captured a town and a village from militants and allied rebels in northwest Syria.

The town of Al Zakat and the Al Arbaeen village in Hama province came under regime control on Wednesday morning, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

It said the clashes overnight killed 10 regime loyalists and 18 opposition fighters, including 13 militants.
