An ambush by opposition fighters near the southern town of  Deraa killed at least seven security forces and wounded dozens on Thursday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"The security forces were travelling on board two buses when they were ambushed on a bridge by dissident soldiers," Rami Abdulrahman, head of the UK-based group, told AFP.
