‘IS attacks Syrian hospital, killing 20 pro-regime forces’


Beirut: Islamic State group jihadists today killed 20 members of pro-regime forces in an attack on a Syrian hospital in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, a monitoring group said.

“IS attacked Al-Assad hospital at the city’s eastern entrance, killing at least 20 soldiers and allied fighters,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

He said the attack sparked clashes in which six jihadists were also killed.
