At least 16 members of Syrian Kurdish security forces were killed on Wednesday in an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group attack on a base in the northeastern province of Hasakeh, a monitor said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights group said ISIS members detonated a car bomb and then opened fire on a building housing Kurdish security forces in Hasakeh city, the provincial capital.
