"A suicide attacker detonated himself in a car bomb in front of the air force intelligence headquarters in Sweida, killing the intelligence branch chief and seven other officers," said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdel Rahman. Sweida province has for the most part escaped Syria's brutal conflict, which in 31 months has killed more than 120,000 people and forced millions more to flee their homes. State news agency SANA also reported the attack, citing a police source who said "eight citizens" were killed and 41 others injured when "terrorists" detonated a car bomb in Sweida. The regime uses the term "terrorists" to refer to opponents and rebels fighting to depose President Bashar al-Assad's regime. The Druze are a minority community in Syria, most of whose members have stayed out of the anti-Assad revolt. Assad's regime claims to protect Syria's minorities against foreign-backed Islamists.
