Jihadist attack kills 30 soldiers in east Syria, war monitor says

At least 30 Syrian soldiers were killed Wednesday in a jihadist attack on their bus in the east of the war-torn country, a monitor says.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the attack in Deir Ezzor province was carried out by the Islamic State group.

The official news agency SANA reports that a “terrorist attack” on a bus killed “25 citizens” and wounded 13.
