ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – An ISIS suicide bomb attack has killed at least 18 people in Syria's northeastern province of Hasaka, including members of the US-backed Kurdish forces and injured many more when it targeted displaced Syrians Thursday evening, a monitoring group reported.
 
“At least 18 people have been martyred who include displaced civilians from Deir ez Zor province and members of the internal security,” the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
 
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) confirmed the attack calling it a “massacre” committed against civilians who fled regime-controlled areas in Deir ez-Zor to Kurdish-controlled areas.
 
A medical source in the Kurdish Red Crescent told Reuters that the death toll is at least 50 following a triple car bomb attack in Abu Furas, which separates Hasaka from Deir ez-Zor. 

The US backed Kurdish-led SDF forces and the Russian-backed Syrian regime are separately pushing to control the ISIS-held areas in the oil-rich province of Deir ez-Zor.
 
Both the SDF and the Observatory blamed the attack on the ISIS militants who are also under the pressure from the SDF forces in Raqqa, their self-styled capital in Syria.

funny how as Turkeys influence in syria grows suicide attacks increase on the kurds,, just a thinking out loud point,, i think we are about to see a war of independence and if they west and east cuts supplies to the turks/syrians/iranians/iraqis it will happen over the 4 regions,, of course the west and east both supplying the kurds would make it quicker and less bloody,, 4 nations attacked and stole a peoples nations resources and tried to take away their identity,, its time for the world to do what is right,, make a stand

Turks gain nothing by having Kurds within their country. They should be the ones who want to divide. Very strange.
