The United States strongly condemns ISIL’s multiple suicide attacks in the town of Tel Tamer in Hasaka Province, which targeted and killed scores of Syrian civilians, including at a hospital and marketplace. We offer our deepest condolences to the families of the victims of this barbaric act of mass murder. This attack once again displays the type of horrific atrocities that ISIL has perpetrated against tens of thousands of innocent people across Syria and Iraq and affirms the need for international resolve to strengthen those on the ground fighting ISIL.

The United States remains committed to working with our partners in Syria, Iraq, and the international community to bring an end to ISIL’s depravity and ultimately destroy this terrorist organization.
