Five killed in triple suicide bombings in Syria

Damascus, March 12: Three suicide bombers detonated themselves at a hotel in Syria’s Qamishli city Tuesday, leaving five people killed and eight wounded, state media said.

The incident occurred as terrorists wearing suicide belts detonated themselves at the Hadaya Hotel in the Kurdish-dominated city of Qamishli in Hasaka province, Xinhua reported citing local media, adding five people were killed and eight wounded in the attack.

According to the recent statistics, over 100,000 people were killed in the Syrian conflicts over the three years; 9.3 million are in need, 4.65 million of whom are children.

Syria’s prolonged crisis has displaced millions of people, who either sought refuge inside the country or in neighbouring Lebanon and Jordan.
