"Twenty-one people were killed in the Nawa area (of Daraa), among them four children and six women, in a blast that detonated as their vehicle went past Tal al-Jumua," AFP quoted the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as reporting.

According to the report, a battalion of Syrian army troops maintains a position in the area.
