At least 20 people have been killed and scores of others injured as a suicide bomber blew up his explosive vest inside a security HQ for rebel forces in the town of Inkhil to the north of the provincial center of Daraa.
According to a local source, a high-level meeting was being held in the targeted facility which included ministers from the interim cabinet and military commanders of different FSA-affiliated factions.
Among the killed are Minister of Local Administration of the Interim Syrian government, Yaطcob al-Ammar, and the military commander of Al-Hamzah Brigade, Abu al-Tayyib.
The suicide bomber was later identified as a 15 year-old boy, who sneaked into the building disguised as a beggar.
The ISIS-affiliated Khalid Ibn al-Walid army claimed responsibility for the attack.
