IP - A roadside bomb detonated Saturday in southwestern Syria, killing at least 8children, SANA reported.

Iran Press/ West Asia: Eight children were killed when a bomb exploded in Al-Sanamayn town in the suburb of Daraa in the south of Syria.

It remains unclear who planted the bomb in the northern countryside of conflict-stricken Daraa province, which lies between Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Syrian government forces and their allies captured the city and province of Daraa from opposition forces in 2018.

Syrian state news agency SANA, citing an unnamed police official in Daraa, blamed militant groups, which are still active in the area.

SANA reported two other injuries in the explosion.

In 2018, after Daraa was retaken by the government forces, Moscow mediated a reconciliation agreement with rebel groups that left them in charge of security in some areas, under Russian supervision, AP reported.

Also on Friday, a bomb that had been planted in a lorry exploded in Al-Sanamayn but there were no reports of any casualties.

Therefore, today's blast was the second in a matter of hours since yesterday in Al-Sanamayn.
