The death toll in coordinated Daesh group attacks in Syria's Swaida neared 250 Thursday, as government forces raised the state flag on Qunaitra city in the south.Wednesday's onslaught shattered the relative calm and showed that Daesh still retains the ability to mount deadly attacks against civilians, despite being ousted from its last remaining urban pockets in recent months.It was the deadliest attack for the province, and one of the highest tolls in Daesh attacks across the country.In Albukamal in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zor, eight regime fighters were also killed in an ambush by Daesh militants, the Observatory reported.The International Committee of the Red Cross called the attack "senseless and tragic".To the south, government forces raised the Syrian flag in the largely ruined city of Qunaitra, regained from surrendering rebels as the government tightens its hold on the Syrian sector of the Golan Heights, the strategic territory bordering Israel and Jordan.
