Sere Kaniye, Syria – The Media Center of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the city of Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ain) in al-Hasakah province, northern Syria, issued a statement on Sunday saying that two suicide bombings targeted their fighters in the city’s countryside.

The YPG’s statement stressed that the Islamic State carried out two car bomb attacks at two different locations of the Kurdish forces, reporting two casualties in the ranks of the YPG. 

Speaking to ARA News on the phone, a member of the YPG’s MC reported that the first attack took place near the village of al-Midan south of Sere Kaniye.

“The other terrorist operation was carried out in the village of Heras, when the explosive car attempted to advance towards the village, but exploded before reaching our headquarters there,” the source said. 

“Two fighters from our units (YPG) were injured along with a number of civilians.” 

A majority of Sere Kaniye’s residents escaped their homes following the escalation of violence in the area. Some of them crossed into Turkey while many others were sheltered in neighboring Kurdish cities.
