Seven soldiers and pro-government militiamen die in attacks attributed to the Islamic State in Syria

At least seven military and pro-government militiamen died this Monday in Syria from the explosion of two bombs allegedly dropped by the Islamic State jihadist group in Homs province, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The London-based organization with informants in the Arab country has stated that the attacks west of the city of Al Sojna in a desert area of ​​Homs were carried out before an additional 18 soldiers and militiamen were injured.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced the capture of the city of Baghuz in March 2019 and the fall of the so-called territorial caliphate of the Islamic State, which no longer controls territory in Syria and Iraq, where it was defeated in December 2017.

However, the group has stepped up its attacks in recent months, causing dozens of deaths in the ranks of the army and pro-government militias, leading the Russian army to also step up its bombing in support of Damascus.
