Six soldiers killed in an attack attributed to the Islamic State in eastern Syria

At least six Syrian soldiers were killed in an attack by the Islamic State jihadist group in a desert area in Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The London-based organization with informants in the Arab country stated on its website that the attack took place in the Ber Abú al Hayaya region in the Al Mayadín desert, with no current claim to authorship.

On the other hand, he has stated that a bomb exploded on Thursday afternoon when a convoy of the United States-led international coalition passed near the village of Abriha, also in Deir Ezzor, although he added that it ended without victims. The coalition did not comment on what happened.
