(IraqiNews) A blast hit al-Talae’ Neighborhood in the Syrian City of Hasakah, on Saturday, injuring two persons.
According to preliminary information, the explosion occurred at 11:15 am, on Saturday, near the Industrial Institute in Talae’ neighborhood, in the city of Hasakah.
The blast took place due to the explosion of a booby-trapped motorbike, and resulted in the injury of two persons, in addition to inflicting slight material damage to the area.
The injured persons were transferred to one of the hospitals in Hasakah to receive the needed treatment.
After the blast, Kurdish security forces (Asayish) cordoned off the incident area, and started an investigation into its circumstances.
It is noteworthy that Hasakah, which has a large Kurdish population, began witnessing protests of several thousand people against the Syrian government in 2012. From 2013, the militia associated with the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), the People’s Protection Units (YPG), controlled Kurdish districts and government Arab districts.
There were also clashes in the city between an Arab insurgent group and the YPG, according to Wikipedia.
