A spokesman for the YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said on Friday that the death toll from the triple truck bomb attack in a YPG-held town in northeastern Syria had risen to 50 to 60 people, with more than 80 others wounded.
The town in northeastern province of Hasaka is controlled by the YPG, the militant arm of the PYD, which is the Syrian branch of the PKK terrorist group based in southeastern Turkey.
The group is fighting against DAESH with the support of US-led air strikes only in northern Syria to protect the territory they hold.
Redur Xelil said via an internet messaging service that one of the explosions happened outside a hospital, another at a market place and the third in a residential area in the YPG-controlled town of Tel Tamer.
A statement on the website of the PYD forces blamed the attack on DAESH.
DAESH took credit for the latest bomb attack via online statement.
The SDF have increased its attacks, which have been intensively reinforced by Russian air strikes, in a critical northern Syrian territory between Azez and Jarablus along the Turkish border.
The SDF - which was recently formed with the support of the US to fight DAESH terrorists - includes Jaysh al Thuwar, the Burkan al Firat Operations Center, the Al Sanadid Forces and the Brigade Groups of Al Jazeera, the Assyrian Military Council and the YPG’s female wing the YPJ, but its members largely consist of YPG militants.
