A car bomb detonated near a church in the Kurdish-majority city of Qamishli in northeast Syria on Thursday July 11th wounding almost a dozen people, state media said.

There was no immediate claim for the attack, which Syrian state television said wounded 11 people and damaged several cars, according to AFP.

Syria's Kurds have led the US-backed fight against Isis in Syria, which continues to claim deadly attacks despite its territorial defeat in March.
