Bomb Blast Hits Syria’s Rakban Refugee Camp

Bomb blast strucks rakban Refugee Camp few days ahead of Kazakhstan peace talk. 

Deaths reported as attack hits camp with 85,000 displaced people just days ahead of peace talks in Kazakhstan.

A bomb blast struck the Rakban camp for displaced people in Syria near the border with Jordan on Saturday, causing injuries and deaths, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor.

Jordan’s official Petra news agency, citing a military source, confirmed that an explosion went off inside the camp. Syrian local media said the blast was caused by a car-bomb and caused deaths and injuries.

There was no claim of responsibility for the bombing. Home to more than 85,000 displaced, the Rakban camp was also targeted by a bomb blast last month.

On Saturday, the Russian defence ministry said six Russian warplanes carried out air strikes on ISIL targets in the Deir ez Zor provice, according to Russian media outlet RIA. 

The ministry added that the planes flew from Russian territory and returned after the strikes, RIA said.
Peace talks

The attacks comes as the Syrian government and rebel groups prepare for upcoming peace talks in Kazakhstan. 

A ceasefire brokered by Russia and Turkey last month has excluded the main hardline group in northwestern Syria, former al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat Fateh al-Sham. Meanwhile a spate of air strikes targeting its leaders have increased mistrust among rebels.
