AMMAN - Islamic State suicide bombers blew up two trucks in the heart of the northeastern Syrian city of Hasaka and a fire erupted at petroleum storage tanks and a textile firm after shelling by the militants, a Syrian army source said on Monday.

The army source was quoted by state television as saying the militants had targeted a major roundabout and near a mosque in the southeastern Ghwyran neighborhood, a residential area that the militants entered since Thursday in a lighting assault to seize the government-held parts of the city.

The Syrian army source did not disclose details on casualties but said a number of "martyrs fell".

"Fire erupted at the (textile) plant and a number of storage tanks," the source said without giving further details.
