Regime artillery fire also killed a sixth civilian in the district of Daraa Al-Balad further south, according to the Observatory. The deaths bring the toll for Thursday’s clashes to a total of 19 across the province, which is located in southern Syria.
The figure includes at least eight Syrian regime fighters and five gunmen affiliated with former opposition groups, the monitor said.
The Russian-backed Syrian army and allied forces recaptured Daraa from rebels in 2018, a symbolic blow to the anti-government uprising born there in 2011.
State institutions have returned but the army still has not deployed across the whole province, and tit-for-tat bombings and assassinations between former opposition figures and regime forces have since become routine.
