Syrian Kurdish authorities say two women and a child killed in ‘terrorist explosion’

Two women and a child from the same family were killed and five other people were wounded in an attack today in Syria’s northern city of Minbej, authorities say.

A “terrorist explosion” occurred as a vehicle carrying civilians passed the entrance to Minbej, an Arab-majority city under Kurdish administration, the Minbej military council says, without providing further details.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor says the blast was a car bomb.

It says two civilians were killed and five wounded, including two members of the Kurdish Asayesh security forces.

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, the regional administration’s main fighting force, spearheaded the fight against the Islamic State terrorist group.
