BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization has claimed responsibility for the latest terrorist attack in Sweida city that killed more than 75 civilians today.

According to the terrorist group’s statement, their attack killed and wounded more than 100 members of the “Nusayri Army” (derogatory term for Alawites).

However, despite their claim of killing soldiers, the Islamic State’s terrorist attack killed scores of civilians in Sweida city, including many women and children.

This is the Islamic State’s first terrorist attack on Sweida city and the first major terrorist attack inside a government area this year.
