A triple suicide bomb attack has ripped through the Syrian town of Qamishli in Hasakah province. The town is directly on the border of Syria and Turkey.
The town was once considered Syria’s unofficial Christian capital, with most residents being Assyrian, with Armenian, Arab and Kurdish minorities. The city is mostly under the control of the Kurdish YPG forces and its Assyrian militia allies. The Syrian Arab Army have a small presence in the town.
Preliminary reports have said that 6 civilians have been killed with at least another 10 injured. It is expected that the death toll will rise. Most of the victims were Christian.
