A vehicle transporting Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers and officers in eastern Daraa was targeted on December 14 with an improvised explosive device (IED).
The attack, which took place on the road between the towns of Naamer and al-Sourah, targeted a vehicle of the army’s 52th Brigade.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), several soldiers and officers were injured as a result of the attack. However, there were no fatalities.
There was no immediate claim for the attack. However, the eastern Daraa countryside is known to be infested with ISIS sleeper cells.
On December 7, two ISIS members attacked a checkpoint of the Syrian Military Intelligence Directorate (MID) in eastern Daraa, killing a service member and injuring two others.
Syrian government forces are conducting a series of combing operations in eastern Daraa. Earlier this week, the army uncovered several weapons caches and a booby-trapped car in the region.
