Raids and suicide bombings carried out by the Islamic State group in Syria’s southern Sweida province have killed 156 people including 62 civilians, a war monitor said Wednesday.

Most of them were killed in raids on villages in the northeast of the province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The others were killed in suicide attacks in the provincial capital, the monitor said, updating earlier tolls.
