YPG leader Redur Xelil says that the attack was likely carried out by the IS group
At least 16 people were killed and more than 25 injured when explosions struck three restaurants in the northeastern Syrian city of Qamishli on Wednesday, a monitoring group said.
At least one of the blasts was caused by a suicide bomber, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told AFP.
An AFP correspondent in the city said the suicide attack took place in a restaurant in a Christian neighbourhood.
"Three explosions, one by a suicide bomber inside a restaurant, hit ... Qamishli city in Hasakah province," the Observatory's director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.
Reuters reported that two of the bombs hit restaurants.
