Car bomb in Deir al-Zor kills 5
Activists on the ground say the bombing took place in Deir al-Zor, an area rife with conflict. The bomb exploded near an office of al-Nusra Front, according to AP.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but many suspect it is the work of jihadist group ISIL. Al-Nusra Front and ISIL have been fighting each other in Syria in addition to battling Assad’s regime.
