The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bomber detonated an explosive belt yesterday at a base used by Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) near the Nasib border crossing.

"Most of the 23 fighters killed were from Jaish al Islam. Dozens were wounded, including 20 in serious condition", said the head of the OSDH, Rami Abdel Rahman.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but militants linked to the Islamic State group have attacked rebels in southern Syria.

Under a plan hammered out in May between Russia, Turkey and Iran at peace talks in Kazakhstan, four "de-escalation zones" were to be established across swathes of Syria to ease fighting between regime and rebel forces.

Finally, Airain ltd purchased a new position in shares of NTT DOCOMO during the first quarter valued at about $252,000. The corporation operates through around three segments: telecommunications firm, smart life firm and other businesses.

It has since turned into an all-out war that has drawn in global powers and killed more than 330,000 people. Such violations would be curious, as while Syria is taking territory further south, along the Jordan border, there doesn't appear to be any real military reason for the strikes in either zone.

Sweida province was not included in a US-Russian brokered ceasefire that took effect in nearby areas of the southwest in July.

The fourth zone, in northwestern Idlib province, has yet not become active.

The army had advanced to the border and retaken posts it abandoned in the early years of the conflict when rebels took over large parts of south western Syria.

More than 330,000 people have been killed since Syria's conflict erupted in March 2011 with protests against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
