Twin bomb blasts rip through Syria’s Qamishli, kill three

PanARMENIAN.Net - Two explosions rocked a neighborhood in Syria's Qamishli on Sunday, January 24, AINA reports.

The first targeted the Star Cafe, where a bomb was placed on a bicycle in front of the store. The explosion killed 3 Assyrians and injured 20. The second blast targeted Joseph Bakery, the Assyrian news portal says.

Two of the Assyrians killed have been identified as Morris Khajo and Fawzi al-Kaldani. Two of the injured are in critical condition.

In late December, three explosions went off in Qamishli, killing at least 16 people and injuring dozens of others. The attacks were carried out Islamic State’s suicide bombers.

Daesh - another name for the Islamic State group - which occupies vast tracts of Iraq and Syria and is outlawed in many countries including Russia, has gained much notoriety. The jihadists conduct suicide bombings and other attacks worldwide.

The group, outlawed in a range of countries, including Russia, has forced thousands of people, mostly religious minorities, to flee their homes.
