At least 22 people have been killed in a Daesh bomb attack on a wedding in the northeastern Syrian province of Hasakah, says a UK-based monitoring group.

"A suicide bomber blew himself up inside a hall in Tall Tawil village during the wedding of a member of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), killing at least 22 civilians," said Rami Abdel Rahman, the director of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, on Monday.

The SDF is an anti-Daesh alliance of Arab, Assyrian, Armenian, Turkmen, and mostly Kurdish fighters belonging to the People's Protection Units, also known as the YPG.

Following the blast, Daesh claimed the killing through Amaq news agency, which is affiliated to the terror group, noting that it had attacked a gathering of Kurdish forces.

"As the bride and groom were exchanging their vows, I saw a man wearing a thick black jacket pass beside me," said a witness. "I thought he looked strange and a few seconds later there was an enormous explosion…People had fallen on the ground and I saw bodies torn to bits."

Hospital sources have also confirmed the blast, noting that dozens of people were wounded in the incident.

The observatory initially reported that the groom had been killed in the blast, but later survivors said both the bride and groom were alive and well.

According to UN estimates, over 400,000 people have died so far in the foreign-sponsored conflict in Syria, which started in March 2011, Ibtimes reported.
