5 Syrian soldiers killed, 20 wounded in Daesh attack

Five Syrian army personnel have been killed and 20 others injured in a rocket attack on a military transport bus in the east of the war-ravaged country.

Sunday’s attack took place at approximately 7pm (17:00 GMT), Syrian state media reported on Monday, adding that a military vehicle in the Badia area came under a rocket attack followed by artillery shelling by Daesh fighters.

Daesh, which declared a caliphate straddling parts of Syria and Iraq in 2014, has lost all the territory that was under its control in 2019.

However, the terror group continues to wage a low-level fight in both countries, launching frequent hit-and-run raids from desert hideouts on either side of the border with Iraq.
