Deadly ambushes

Several buses carrying regime soldiers had come under missile attacks in the past, the last of which was on May 13 in which ten soldiers were killed and nine others injured, according to reports.

Syria's 11-year-old war has carved the country into various zones of control, with regime troops and allied fighters controlling the most territory.

One of the deadliest bus ambushes was in December 2020, when 28 people were killed in an attack on a main highway in Syria's eastern Deir Ezzor province.
