At least 15 Kurdish armed militia were killed, scores others wounded as ISIS bombers conducted today two separate suicide attacks inside the predominantly-Kurdish city of Al-Qamishli in northeastern Syria.

The first attack took place at Al-Wahda Street when a jihadi blew up his explosive vest amid a gathering of YPG militants.

Moments later, a booby-trapped vehicle went off at the Cornish Street leaving at least 15 Kurdish militants dead, according to initial reports.

ISIS claimed responsibility for both attacks via the group’s social media account.

Fierce clashes broke out yesterday between the Kurdish militia and government forces, causalities reported.

The YPG, backed by Kurdish Special Forces (HAT), managed to capture several government held facilities, most importantly Alaya prison.

A military source exclusively told Al-Masdar News that Kurds shelled the prison with tanks previously handed to them by the Syrian Army in order to fight ISIS.

“Those  are out tanks they are pounding us with; we gave it to them to fight ISIS but now they are shelling us”, the source said.

Peace were only 3 hours and then clashes started again. Kurds feel so strong, that they think, they can win against all.
