    At least six people were killed and 15 injured in the Saturday car bomb explosion in the northeastern Syrian city of Qamishli on the border with Turkey, a source in the Christian Assyrian militia told RIA Novosti.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — The car bomb reportedly exploded near Kurdish self-defense forces' checkpoint.

    "Currently there is information about six dead, fifteen more people were injured," the source said.

    A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire agreement came into force across Syria on February 27. The deal does not apply to terrorist groups such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front.
