Six members of the Kurdish-led security forces were killed today in an Islamic State (IS) suicide attack on a security center in the Syrian city of Raqqa, Reuters reported, citing the head of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

One suicide bomber killed himself and another was detained, the head of the media center of the Kurdish formations said

IS captured large parts of Iraq and Syria in 2014, including Raqqa, where it established its seat of power, but since losing its last significant territory in Syria in 2019, has relied on guerrilla attacks.

A major Islamist attack on the Syrian Democratic Forces-run al-Sina prison in the Syrian city of Hasakah in January killed around 500 people, including 374 people linked to the Islamic State group and dozens of fighters and guards.
