The double blasts took place on Monday in Khashman and al-Mahatta neighborhoods of Hasaka

26 civilians were killed and 70 others were injured in twin terrorist attacks using two car bombs driven by suicide bombers which took place on Monday in Hasaka city.

A source at the Hasaka Police Command told SANA’s correspondent that a suicide bomber driving a car rigged with explosives carried out the first bombing at Khashman neighborhood in the northern outskirts of the city, killing five and injuring 30, some of them women and children, and most of them sustained very severe injuries.

The source went on to say that about half an hour later, another suicide bomber, this one driving a tanker rigged with explosive, carried out the second bombing in al-Mahata neighborhood in the west of the city, claiming the lives of 12 people including a woman and her two children, and injuring 40 others.

A police source said later that the death toll from the bombing in al-Mahata neighborhood had climbed to 21 as the bodies of nine other martyrs were pulled from under the rubble.

The number of victims is poised to rise as many of the injured lie in critical condition, according to the source.

The source added that the two bombings also caused massive material damage to the sites of the attacks.

Medical source at the Hasaka Health Directorate said that most of the victims injured in the al-Mahatta bombing were women and children, and that three of them are in critical condition.


The Cabinet denounces the bombings

The Cabinet denounced the double attacks in Hasaka city.

Prime Minister Dr. Wael al-Halqi said in a statement that such acts won’t take away from the steadfastness of al-Hasaka locals who have proved unflinching support for the army in the war against terrorists, saying they are a “proof of bankruptcy” illustrating a state of desperation in the ranks of terrorist organizations.
