An image made available by the jihadist Twitter account Al-Baraka news allegedly shows Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants taking position at a Iraqi border post on the Syrian-Iraqi border between the Iraqi Nineveh province and the Syrian town of Al-Hasakah.

Damascus - A bomb attack targeting a weapons bazaar in eastern Syria close to the Iraqi border killed 30 “terrorists” on Saturday, state television reported.

“A big explosion hits a terrorist arms market in Mayadeen, killing 30 terrorists and wounding dozens of others,” the television reported.

A rebel official from the town in Deir Ezzor province told AFP the blast killed at least 15 civilians in a street market.

He said a car bomb was detonated by the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the same group which has spearheaded an offensive in neighbouring Iraq this week that has seen militants sweep down from second city Mosul towards Baghdad. - Sapa-AFP
