A car bomb ripped through near a church in an Assad-regime controlled area of Qamishli, northeastern Syria on Thursday, wounding almost a dozen people, an AFP journalist and regime-controlled media said.
There was no immediate claim for the attack, which Assad regime television said wounded 11 people and damaged several cars.
The metal gate of the church was slightly dented by the blast, but the building otherwise emerged intact, the AFP correspondent said.
Much of Qamishli is controlled by the PKK-affiliated People's Protection Units (YPG), a group with which the United States has partnered in its fight against ISIS.
