On June 11, an attack with an improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a civilian car in the eastern countryside of Daraa in southern Syria.
Local sources said the incident took place on a road between the towns of al-Sourah and al-Hrak, near a checkpoint of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
According to the Syrian state TV, three civilians were injured in the IED attack. Two of the wounded were reportedly a woman and her daughter from the nearby town of Elmah. The third person, who may have been the target, is yet to be identified.
There was no immediate claim for the attack. Nevertheless, ISIS remains the main suspect. The terrorist group’s cells are known to be highly-active in northern and eastern Daraa.
In the last few months, the SAA amassed a large force in Daraa. Many sources reported that a security operation is being prepared. However, this is yet to happen. The Russian Military Police are now working to improve coordination between local fighters and Syrian authorities through talks.
