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.

Zen, there are no ministers, there are no rebels, and there is no interim government. They are only foreign mercenaries and traitors. Please stop dignifying this garbage with titles.
