Daesh car bomb reportedly kills 20 at site for displaced families in East Syria
The area is located near the city of Deir ez-Zor that has recently been fully liberated by the Syrian army, APA reports quoting sputniknews.
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.
The attack took place near al-Jafra area located south of the Deir ez-Zor city.
While the three-year siege of the city of Deir ez-Zor by Daesh terrorists had been lifted months ago, it had been fully liberated from remaining jihadists earlier in November. The liberation of the city has a strategic role, as Deir ez-Zor is situated at the crossroads of routes connecting the eastern part of the country with central and northern ones.
