An explosive-laden vehicle detonated in the north-eastern Syrian city of Qamishli on Wednesday, as a string of explosions rocked the region. No casualties have been reported.
Footage shows the aftermath of the explosion. The blast took place at around 13:00 local time (10:00 GMT).
Qamishli, which largely remains under Kurdish control, was excluded from Tuesday's agreement that was struck between Turkey and Russia.
A second explosion reportedly took place in Suluk, southeast of Tel Abyad, and a third explosion hit the town of al-Shaddadi in al-Hasakah Governorate.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to establish a 'safe-zone' in north-eastern Syria and to carry out joint border patrols in the area, except the city of Qamishli.
The two leaders also signed a memorandum of understanding stating that Kurdish forces must withdraw from the zone within 150 hours, starting from Wednesday, October 23.
According to the accord, Ankara's military operation in north-eastern Syria, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring', will continue between the towns of Tel Abyad and Ras al-Ayn, some 32 kilometres (20 miles) inside Syrian territory.
