E. Syrian explosion leaves 5 officials killed

(MENAFN) Based on a confirmation made on Sunday by a local war observer, the eastern province of Deir al-Zour in Syria was struck by a massive explosion, with five pro-government fighters reported killed.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights revealed in a statement that a landmine explosion targeted a police vehicle a day earlier in a desert region in the western countryside of Deir al-Zour, causing the death of the five fighters.

The agency further declared that it is highly believed that the blast was the work of the Islamic State (IS) group, which has been active in the desert region and has intensified attacks on Syrian soldiers and pro-government fighters since March.
