The bomber detonated an explosive belt on Friday at a base used by Jaish al-Islam near the Nasib border crossing, the source added.

"Most of the 23 rebels killed were from Jaish al-Islam. Dozens were wounded, including 20 in critical condition," said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Syria's uprising erupted in Daraa province in March 2011 with widespread protests calling for the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.
