IED attack | Explosion targets regime military bus in rural Daraa, leaving many injured

Daraa province: SOHR sources have reported that 12 regime soldiers injured in an IED explosion in a regime military bus near Sayda bridge on Damascus-Daraa highway. It is worth noting that the bus was carrying soldier serving in the costumes house in Naseeb on the Syria-Jordan border.


Yesterday, SOHR activists documented the death of two regime soldiers in an attack by unidentified gunmen on a joint checkpoint, where members of the 52nd Brigade and Air Force Intelligence were stationed, in the center of Al-Maliha Al-Gharbiyah at the junction of Rakhm village in the eastern Daraa countryside. The assailants managed to escape.


Accordingly, the number of attacks in Daraa province since early January has risen to 20, which left 16 people: eight civilians, six regime-backed combatants and an individual with settled-status dead.


Since the beginning of the security chaos in Daraa in early June 2019, Syrian Observatory activists have documented more than 1,316 attacks and assassination attempts by gunfire and detonations of IEDs, motorcycle-bombs and car-bombs. These attacks and assassinations claimed the lives of 960 persons, categorised as follows:


  • Four local gunmen of anti-reconciliation groups.


  • 311 civilians, including 18 women and 26 children


  • 417 regime soldiers, loyalists and collaborators with regime security services.


  • 160 fighters of factions that struck “reconciliation and settlements” deals with the regime and became in the ranks of regime’s security branches, including former commanders.


  • 31 Syrian militiamen affiliated to the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iranian forces.


  • 37 members of the so-called 5th Corps which was established by Russia.
