    A series of explosions have hit the Syrian city of Tel Tamer, leaving 15 dead and more than one hundred wounded.

    ​Terrorists have detonated three cars in the city of Tel Tamer, in the Syrian province al Hasakah, a source in the people's militia told RIA Novosti. Casualties among civilians are reported.

    "There were three explosions. One car exploded near a military hospital of the Kurdish self-defense forces, another two blasts hit the streets nearby. There are casualties; the number is still unclear," the source said.

    Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with the country’s government fighting a number of opposition factions as well as radical Islamist groups, including the Islamic State (ISIL, or Daesh in Arabic) and the al Nusra Front.
