IS fighter blows himself up in Syria

Damascus: A suicide bomber with the Islamic State (IS) militant group blew himself up near the headquarters of Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria on Friday, killing two people, Xinhua reported.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a London-based watchdog group, said the IS suicide bomber blew himself up near a position of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), adding that the bomber likely exploded inside the headquarters of the YPG in the southwestern countryside of al-Hasakah province.

Human losses are confirmed among the Kurds, it said, stopping short of giving a death toll.

Meanwhile, the Syrian official TV said two people were killed and three others wounded as a result of the blast that took place in Tuq al-Milh town in al-Hasakah.
