The ISF issued a statement announcing that the executors of the explosions targeted Qamishlo city on Monday were arrested, and assured that the elements of the cell were receiving their orders directly from a person in Turkey.
The statement included,
“Our forces in Qamishlo city managed to expose the terrorist and criminal operation’s circumstances that targeted Qamishlo city on Monday, 11 November.
During the search and review of the surveillance cameras, our forces were able to identify the elements of the terrorist cell that carried out the criminal operation. In a raid after midnight on November 12, 2019, our forces arrested Ahmed Jassem al-Mostafa, the bomber and other elements who participated in the operation.
During the initial interrogation and research into the electronic devices they used and the correspondence before and after the operation, it was shown that the cell members received their orders directly from a person living in Turkey, as well as the costs of carrying out the operation from the same person.
The city of Qamishlo was attacked yesterday by a car bomb parked in front of al-Shemou’ (Candles) Cafe near the intersection of MTN, and two motorcycles, one of them in front of a Chaldean church, which led to martyring 5 civilians, and injuring 26 others with various injuries, including 4 members of our forces.
We in the Internal Security Forces in northern and eastern Syria, stress that such terrorist operations aim at destabilizing security in our regions, and come in full coordination with the countries that sponsor terrorism and occupy parts of our country, and we assure that our forces will continue to work on standing beside our people and defending our territory and people in any way available against any invasion or terrorist act aims at striking security and spreading fear among the citizens.”
