The Islamic State (IS) attacked the Iraqi Hezbollah group in eastern Syria on Thursday, leaving two killed and five wounded, a war monitor reported.

The IS attacked the Iraqi Hezbollah group in the desert region of the city of Mayadeen in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour province in eastern Syria, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Iraqi Hezbollah group fights alongside the Syrian government forces in several areas, mainly in eastern Syria.

The IS group has been carrying out attacks in eastern Syria, targeting Syrian forces and allied fighters.

The observatory said that as many as 418 Syrian soldiers and pro-government fighters have been killed by IS attacks in eastern Syria since March 24.

The IS lost key areas across the country, but sleeper cells and some groups in the desert region often launch attacks on Syrian forces.
