A large number of civilians were killed as a result of a auto bomb attack near the border of Deir ez-Zor and Hasaka provinces.

A militant vehicle bombing targeting displaced Syrians in the northeastern province of Hasakeh on Thursday killed at least 18 people, including Kurdish security forces, a monitor said.

"Regime forces, led on the ground by Russian forces, took control of at least four neighbourhoods of Mayadeen", Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

The group is battling an offensive led by a Kurdish-Arab alliance backed by a US-led coalition on the city of Raqa, which was once the de facto Syrian capital of its "caliphate".

SDF spokesman Talal Sello confirmed a vehicle bombing targeting people displaced from Deir Ezzor, saying it took place in the Hasakeh's southern area of Abu Fass.

Abu Fas is where Kurdish authorities gather people displaced by conflict before allowing them to enter camps where they can shelter, the SOHR said.

The Islamic State group had last week succeeded in expelling Syrian forces from Mayadeen two days after they entered the town, which lies about 420 kilometres (260 miles) east of Damascus and is one of IS's main remaining bastions.

The state news agency SANA confirmed that troops had re-entered Mayadeen.

Recently, the Syrian army and its allies have made advances in the area and besieged IS in the city of Al-Mayadeen, 45 km southeast of Deir al-Zour.
