ISIS have claimed responsibility for a today’s massive suicide bombings in Syria that killed 48 people.
Among the victims were women and children at a Kurdish security facility in al-Qamishli in the country’s north less than a mile from the Turkish border.
Kurdish officials said the attack was carried out by a terrorist driving an explosives-laden truck and the explosion was so powerful it shattered windows in a Turkish town a mile away.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor gave a toll of 48 dead, adding that children and women were among those killed.
It was the largest and deadliest attack to hit the city since the beginning of Syria’s conflict in March 2011.
The blast was initially described as a double bombing, but local officials and the Observatory said the bomb had detonated a nearby fuel container, leading to reports of a second explosion.
The explosion was so powerful it shattered the windows of shops a mile away in the Turkish town of Nusaybin across the border where two people were hurt.
