According to Syrian state media SANA, a Daesh car bomb has killed 20 at a site where displaced families are located in the country's east.

 

A souce told Sputnik, "According to the initial information, 20 people have been killed and 28 more people have been injured as a result of the explosion of a bomb-laden car by the Islamic State [ISIS, Daesh, banned in Russia] terror group in Al Faraj village … which is under control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF)," adding that the death toll was likely to increase.
