Fighting between rebels and Islamic
State (IS) militants around the strategic
Syrian town of Marea has left 47 dead,
according to activists.
The UK-based Syria Observatory for
Human Rights said that 27 IS fighters
were killed, with the rest being from
other anti-government groups.
Marea lies in an area that Turkey and
the US have reportedly wanted to turn
into an IS-free "safe zone".
Last month it was alleged IS had used
chemical weapons in an attack on Marea.
Medecins Sans Frontieres said that on
August 21, it had treated four members
of a family who suffered from breathing
difficulties and developed blisters after
a mortar hit their home in Marea.
The Syrian American Medical Society
has also reported receiving 50 patients
showing symptoms of chemical expo-
sure. Local rebels say the shells were
fired from an IS-held village to the east.
Last month the US said it suspected
IS of having used chemical agents in
another attack on Kurdish forces in
northern Syria. Reports of a sulphur
mustard attack on Iraqi Kurdish Pesh-
merga fighters in Iraq are also being
Also yesterday, US Secretary of State
John Kerry expressed concern to his
Russian counterpart over reports of "an
imminent enhanced Russian military
build-up" in Syria.
Kerry "made clear that if such reports
were accurate, these actions could fur-
ther escalate the conflict, lead to greater
loss of innocent life, increase refugee
flows and risk confrontation with the
anti-ISIL coalition operating in Syria,"
the state department said. (BBC)
BEIRUT---An unusual wave of unrest mounted
yesterday in a normally quiet southern Syrian
province, according to residents and activists there,
after a double car-bombing killed a prominent
Druse cleric who had challenged the government
by supporting young men who refused to serve in
the national army.
Angry residents staged demonstrations and attacked
security offices, activists said, and by yesterday after-
noon the security forces had withdrawn from the
city of Sweida leaving only pro-government militias
recruited locally, mostly from the minority Druse
sect that predominates in the area.
Six members of the security forces were killed in
the clashes, according to an antigovernment mon-
Syria s state news media noted the explosions,
blaming "terrorists," but did not mention the cleric s
death and denied that any members of the security
forces had been killed. Sweida s police chief said the
city was calm.
The unrest began Friday after the cleric, Sheikh
Wahid al-Balous, was killed along with at least 27
others in the twin bombings, activists said. There
was no immediate claim of responsibility for the
bombings, but some residents blamed the govern-
The unusual events underscored the strains growing
even in areas that have traditionally supported Pres-
ident Bashar al-Assad or tried to remain neutral
during the primarily Sunni insurgency against him.
