BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria reported that an explosive device was detonated under a Russian military vehicle in the Kobani (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) area near the Turkish border on Tuesday.

The reconciliation center told reporters that “unknown persons this morning tried to block the patrol of the Russian military police” in the area, where “an explosion occurred under one of the patrol vehicles at the last point on its path.”

The center added that “no one was injured as a result of the detonation of the improvised explosive device.”

No group has claimed responsibility for this attack.

Tuesday’s attack against the Russian military marked the first time this month that they have been targeted during their patrols in northern Syria.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
