A statement by Amaq news agency, which is close to Islamic State militants, said a suicide bomber had attacked a gathering of Kurdish YPG fighters on the edge of the city with machineguns and an explosive vest. They did not give further details.
Some unconfirmed reports said a woman suicide bomber may have been behind the attack.
Hasaka is mainly in the hands of the YPG militia after it evicted the Syrian army in August.
The incident took place in early evening at a public hall on the highway between Hasaka and Kurdish-controlled Qamishli city, further northeast.
