Car bomb explodes in Kobani

World Bulletin / News Desk 

A car bomb exploded in the Syrian town of Kobani near the Turkish border gate on Thursday as ISIL staged an attack from three sides of the town, a Kurdish YPG militia official told.

The attack killed and wounded people in the town but the toll was not immediately clear, the official said.

Kurdish forces, helped by U.S. and allied air support, retook control of Kobani at the end of January after a four-month siege by ISIL members, who have seized large parts of Syria and Iraq.

The YPG militia has since led an attack against ISIL strongholds in Syria, backed by U.S.-led airstrikes.

Thousands of people who fled Kobani across the border to Turkey have returned to the town since the siege.

Welat Omer, a doctor in Kobani, told that around 60-70 people had been wounded in the latest attacks, many of them women and children.
