DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:20 A.M.) – Powerful explosion ripped through a building in Nawa city in Dara’a province on Thursday afternoon.

According to sources, a suicide bomber affiliated with the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS) managed to enter the headquarters of Qassem Abu Al-Zen, leader of the military council of Nawa. The latter is connected with the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) that controls the city.

Having sneaked inside, the suicide bomber detonated himself killing several FSA members as well, while also causing material damage.

So far, no exact number of casualties has been reported.

It is not the first time the military council of Nawa becomes a target for IS, as the designated terror group already conducted a terrorist attack inside council’s HQ earlier, in February 2017.

IS-controlled town of Tasil is located just 9 kilometres southwest of Nawa. Unable to conduct large-scale operations against outnumbering FSA forces, IS jihadists rely on sneak terrorist attacks and blitz raids.
