ISIS car bomb kills 20 injures 30 at site for displaced families in eastern Syria – state media

"Dozens of people were wounded, and the death toll could rise because of the number of serious injuries", said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.

The displaced people had been on their way to neighboring Hasakeh province, where camps have been set up to house them in Kurdish-controlled territory, Abdel Rahman said.

Syrian state broadcaster SANA said that 30 others were injured at a site where displaced families were relocated in eastern Syria near the city of Deir el-Zour.

In September, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to recapture the Jafra oil field from Islamic State.

ISIS fighters are now cornered in part of Deir Ezzor province around the border town of Albu Kamal on the frontier with Iraq, and many civilians have been trying to flee the affected areas.

On Friday, ISIS carried out a vehicle bombing in the area south of the city of Deir Ezzor, attacking a camp where displaced families have fathered between al-Jafra and al-Koniko.

The militants group seized large areas of both Syria and Iraq in a lightning 2014 campaign, but has this year seen its self-proclaimed "caliphate" crumble as it came under multiple offensives.
