Dozens of people were killed Wednesday in a suicide bombing in southwestern Syria, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.
A suicide bomber targeted a marketplace in the regime-controlled city of Sweida, according to SANA.
“Competent authorities” pursued two other suicide bombers and managed to kill them before they committed more bombings, and also killed a Daesh terrorist in the city’s Al-Maslakh area, SANA reported.
Local sources said that at least 38 people lost their lives in the suicide attack.
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.
