DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:45 A.M.) – Over 10 were killed and 20 were injured when an ISIS car bomb targeted a rebel vehicle belonging to the Jordanian-backed Jaish Ahrar al-Asha’ir  patrolling the Rukban Refugee Camp a few kilometers from the Syrian-Jordanian borders.

Many civilians were killed and injured in the attack as they went about their daily business in the streets of the camp that has a notorious reputation for the wide presence of ISIS sleeper cells within its populace. A second explosion would follow the initial attack with unknown effects to this moment.

No one has taken credit for the attacks yet. Though, the Islamic State terror group is the most likely culprit as it frequently targets the crippled refugee camp with its bombings. Below are some pictures from the incident scene:
