ISIS launches deadly raid on Syria refugee camp

The Takfiri terrorist group of Daesh has detonated two car bombs at a refugee camp in Syria, close to the country's border with Jordan, killing at least 15 people.

(Press tv) -- Several others were also injured in the late Monday blasts at the Rukban camp, Reuters reported.

The camp, which also accommodates militants, is reportedly policed by the so-called Jaish Ahrar al-Ashair militant group.

One blast occurred near a restaurant and the second at the camp's market.

The US-based SITE intelligence group said Daesh had claimed responsibility for the attacks through its Amaq media arm.

The camp was hit several times with terror attacks since last year.

Foreign-backed militancy started in Syria in 2011. Daesh also launched its terror campaign in the Arab country in 2014.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that the Syrian army was mobilizing its troops to the border area near Jordan to fight extremist militants there.
