At least 32 people were killed in an Islamic state group attack near a refugee camp on the Syrian side of the border with Iraq

The dawn I.S attack hit a makeshift camp where some 300 families were waiting to cross into SDF-held territory in Hasakeh province, in northeastern Syria.

The Syrian observatory for human rights monitoring group said at least five suicide attackers blew themselves up outside and inside a camp.

Heavy clashes then erupted between the IS fighters and the SDF, some of whose combatants were among the dead.
