UPDATE: Double suicide bombing kill 17 in Syrian Kurdish city of Qamishlo

By Rudaw 31/12/2015

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—At least 17 people have been killed and 30 others wounded as a result of two bomb blasts in the Syrian Kurdish city of Qamishlo on Wednesday night.

An eyewitness in Qamishlo told Rudaw that the bombs went off at 10:05 pm at the city’s Christian neighborhood of Wista.

“An explosion took place near Miami café and power is out in the whole city right now,” the eyewitness said.

The second blast occurred in front of Gabriel restaurant.

Rudaw has learned that 7 people died at Miami café and two in front of Gabriel restaurant.

Both bombings were carried out by suicide bombers, sources in Qamishlo told Rudaw.

The café and restaurant are located in a part of the city that is under the control of Syrian government forces.

The first suicide bomber managed to enter the café and blow himself up, a local resident told Rudaw. The second bomber blew himself up in front of the restaurant.

Qamishlo is Syria’s largest Kurdish city and mostly under Kurdish control. The Syrian government has maintained some presence since July 2012.

Terror is OK when done by Kurds, right? It is OK to bomb Turkish kids, place mines, right... Only bad when done against Kurds, right? EITHER REFUSE ALL TERROR, OR GET USED TO LIVING WITH TERROR.. This is what happens when you embrace terror as means.. It turns and finds you, one day or another.

I wouldn't be surprised if the suicide bombers were Kurdish Islamist idiots, brainwashed by our barbarian mullahs.
uh? | 31/12/2015
There is no ISIS within 100km of Qamishlo. Either Assad's army suicide bombed its own sector or the YPG suicide bombed the sector. There have been a lot of Assad-YPG conflicts in Qamishlo recently.

They came from the turkish military that is close to Qamishlo, turks let them in and out because the border is runed by terrorists of Turdey. Rojava and Bakur is getting close for a big Kurdistan witht the rest. Turks should learn kurdish and accept their old heritage, they are all kurds after all. Its okey that they where rape victims of russians, its old now.

to Hans Turkerian : You trust in your own lies If PKK was acting like arabs, they would easily make thousand of deaths with REAL TERRORIST BOMBINGS. Your BASTARD country is the result of the rapes of greeks, bulgarians cirkasians, anatolians, by 3% of real asian turks : all this shit mixed with islam... Turks are the prostitute of nato, without nato you would not be able to counter strike the rebelion of 90'
