BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – A huge car bomb attack carried out by an unknown party has left at least two dozen Syrian rebels belonging to both Al-Qaeda and opposition groups dead and wounded after it struck a checkpoint base in the country’s southwest.

According to developing reports, a car bomb attack has been unleashed against a militant checkpoint base area manned by fighters of the both the Al-Qaeda affiliate group Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and the Free Syrian Army in the province of Daraa.

The jointly-manned checkpoint area known as Al-Rubaii is located near the town of Al-Masifrah in the eastern countryside of Daraa.

The car bomb explosion was so powerful as to have killed and injured at least two dozen rebels.

Although it remains unknown at the present time which party carried out the attack, it is worth noting that the Al-Rubaii checkpoint use to serve as detachment point for two Free Syrian Army groups that have recently descended into a state of war with one another – indicating that a rival opposition group may be responsible.

The second possibility is that the attack was carried out by elements loyal to the so-called Islamic State group.
