Up to 12 people were reportedly injured when a car bomb exploded outside a church in the Al-Wasta neighbourhood of Qamishli, northern Syria, on Thursday.

Footage from the site of the blast captures the destruction caused by the explosion, with debris seen strewn across the street, while adjoining shops and other buildings are seen with damaged windows and blackened facades. Local residents and security forces were also seen clearing the debris.

The self-proclaimed Islamic State has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack, and there have been no reports of fatalities as of yet, according to local media.
