Syria: Suicide bombings by Daesh leaves 220 dead in SW Syria

By Mahmoud Barakat

(AA & The Muslim News): 220 people were killed Wednesday in a series of suicide bombings in southwestern Syria, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

There were four blasts, one of which was carried out by a motorcycle bomber who ploughed into a marketplace in the city of Government controlled Sweida city in the early hours of the morning.

Security forces managed to kill two other attackers in the city’s Al-Maslakh district, the news agency reported.

Daesh has claimed responsibility for the attacks

Sweida has largely escaped the violence that has engulfed most of Syria during the brutal seven-year civil war.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
