A car bombing claimed by Isis has killed five people, including three children, in a Kurdish-held town in northeast Syria, AFP reported.

The explosive-rigged vehicle was detonated remotely on Wednesday August 7th in front of the post office in Al-Qahtaniya, a town in Hasakeh province.

State news agency SANA also reported the bombing, saying it killed several people, including children. 

Isis claimed the attack on its Telegram channel. The jihadist group routinely claims attacks in northeast Syria, despite its territorial defeat earlier this year.

The country's war has killed more than 371,000 people and displaced millions since it started in 2011.
