DAMASCUS: Suspected Druze militants killed six Syrian security forces in the predominantly-Druze province of Swaida on Saturday, just a day after deadly bombings killed a Druze spiritual leader antagonist to the Syrian regime, a monitor group reported.

While further details surrounding the incident are still forthcoming, activists reported a tense situation in Swaida after twin bombings a day earlier in the Druze city killed 33 people, including Sheikh Wahid al-Balous, a Druze spiritual leader and outspoken critic of the Syrian regime.
