Syria: 75 killed, 140 hurt in IS car bombing

 

WEB DESK

syria-conflictAt least 75 civilians were killed and 140 wounded in a reported Islamic State group car bombing that struck a gathering of people displaced by fighting in eastern Syria yesterday.

Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights today said that the attack in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor killed at least 75 displaced civilians including children.

Abdel Rahman said the victims had fled battles in the province, where Syrian regime forces and a US-backed Kurdish-Arab alliance, the Syrian Democratic Forces, are fighting the extremist group in separate offensives.

The Britain-based war monitor, which relies on a network of sources on the ground inside Syria for its information, reported yesterday that dozens had died in the blast.

Fighting across Deir Ezzor province has sent thousands of civilians fleeing for their lives, some straight into the desert. Some had sought refuge in a desert area controlled by the SDF on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River where the yesterday bombing struck.

It was not the first attack attributed to IS against civilians fleeing Deir Ezzor.
