Car Bomb Goes Off In Syria’s Qamishli, Killing Four
DAMASCUS, At least four people were killed on Friday, when a car bomb went off in Syria’s Qamishli city, in northeast Syria.
The explosion rocked Munir Street in Qamishli, near a restaurant, which left many people wounded as well.
Meanwhile, eyewitnesses said, a huge explosion was heard at Munir street and people rushed to the area to see what happened.
Big smoke was seen near the restaurant that is usually crowded, the man said, asking not to be named.
The man said that six cars were ablaze and some buildings were damaged, noting that, the people didn’t know whether it was a car bomb or a Turkish shell that could have slammed the area.
The explosion comes as Turkey started a military operation against Kurdish forces, in northern Syria, to eliminate the Kurdish forces and to impose a safe zone to resettle millions of Syrian refugees.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has issued two statements since the beginning of the Turkish operation, accusing the Turkish side of targeting residential areas and causing deaths among civilians.
Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Mekdad, blamed the Kurdish forces for what is going on in northern Syria, saying, the Syrian government will not dialog with U.S.-backed Kurdish forces, who betrayed their country by betting on U.S. support, instead of reconciling with the Syrian government.
The arms of the Syrian government are open for all its citizens, but there is no way for us to discuss with them (Kurdish forces) neither by a separatist logic nor by the concept that they are a strong force on the ground, he said.
