Al-Qamishli: Three killed in bomb attack

KurdWatch, January 29, 2016—On January 24, 2016, a bomb attached to a parked bicycle detonated in the city center of al‑Qamishli. Three people were killed and five more were injured. The Islamist State (IS) is supposedly responsible for the attack. This was reported on the IS-affiliated Facebook site Aʿmaq. However, in a statement the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), held the regime-loyal National Defense Army responsible for this attack as well as for the attacks on December 30, 2015 [further information]. These accusations were not given any further explanations.
