• It was not immediately clear who was behind the blast
• At least 12 people were killed and scores wounded on Tuesday in aerial strikes
A blast killed six soldiers in southern Syria on Wednesday in a rare such deadly attack in the defeated cradle of the eight-year uprising, a war monitor said.
"The explosive device was aimed at a convoy transporting members of the Fourth Division" in the southern province of Daraa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Fifteen others were also wounded in the attack near Yadud village, some seven kilometres (four miles) outside the provincial capital of Daraa city, the Britain-based monitor said.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the blast, but loyalists in the province face explosions and gunfire on a near daily basis, although they are usually not deadly, it said.
"Previous rebel fighters who call themselves the Popular Resistance usually carry out these types of attacks against the regime," Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

State news agency SANA said "terrorists targeted a military vehicle on the Yaduda road", reporting an undefined number of "dead and wounded".
Russia-backed government forces last summer retook the province, following a deadly bombardment campaign and surrender deals that saw part of the population board buses to an opposition holdout region in the northwest.
Government institutions have since returned, but army forces have not deployed in all of the province.
Syrian air strike
At least 12 people were killed and scores wounded on Tuesday in aerial strikes believed to have been carried out by the Syrian air force on a popular market in a village in opposition-held northwestern Syria, rescuers and residents said.
Residents and rescuers said bombs dropped on Maar Shoreen village in southern Idlib province by planes which monitors said were Syrian army jets left a trail of death and destruction and wounded scores in a main street of the village's market.
Videos released on social media by activists purportedly showed footage of charred bodies lying on the streets alongside badly burnt people being carried by rescuers. Reuters was unable immediately to independently verify the footage.
Hundreds of civilians have been killed since a Russian-led assault on the last rebel bastion in northwestern Syria began nearly two months ago, rights groups and rescuers said.
The Britain-based monitor said Russian aircraft carried out the air raids, but Moscow denied it was responsible.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday’s airstrike on the market in Maaret Al Numan killed 10 and wounded others.
A Britain-based war monitoring group said the Israeli airstrikes killed 11 people. Syrian state media only reported that two civilians were killed.
The latest casualties in the town of Saraqeb came as government forces captured two new villages on the southern edge of Idlib. The province has been the center point of a government push under the cover of airstrikes, according to opposition activists and pro-government media.
A medical staffer at the hospital said that the man died due to severe injuries and fractures that he sustained in the accident.
