At least 22 people were killed by three truck bombs in a Kurdish-controlled town in northeastern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Friday.
It said the death toll from the attack in Tel Tamer late on Thursday was likely to increase. The town in the northeastern province of Hasaska is controlled by the Kurdish YPG militia, which has been battling Islamic State with the support of U.S.-led air strikes.
