ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – An unknown armed group threw a grenade at the house of a member of the Syrian Democratic Youth Council in Hasaka, killing two sisters.
The incident occurred at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday in the Al-Aziziyah neighborhood.
The attack led to the death of two sisters, Dilan Sheikh Mahmoud, a member of the Syrian Democratic Youth Council, and her sister Dilyar Sheikh Mahmoud.
Dilyar is an agricultural engineering student, while her sister worked as a hairdresser.
The father of two girls was a member of the Kurdish security police also known as Asayish.
The Asayish cordoned off the area but did not capture the suspects.
The incident is not the first attack in Hasaka, a region under the control of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
On June 30, a booby-trapped motorcycle in the area of the Al-Ghassaniyah School targeted the headquarters of the Syriac Security Forces, also known as Sutoro in Syriac, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
The attack killed one person and injured many others.
