IS Suicide Squad Kills 30 People at Syrian Camp; IS Faces Much Pressure,About to Lose Its Capital

More than 30 Kurdish fighters and civilians were killed and 30 more wounded in Syria today (May 2, 2017), after an Islamic State (IS) suicide squad attacked a camp for displaced persons, according to the Euro News website.

The makeshift refuge for Syrians and Iraqis is in Rajm al-Salibi, close to Syria's northeastern border with Iraq.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims five suicide bombers detonated themselves outside and inside the camp.

The Islamic State is coming under increased pressure from Syrian rebels, Kurds, and Arabs backed by U.S. air power, and a coalition offensive on the Islamic State's Syrian capital, Raqqa, is expected soon.
