Suicide bombings kill 22 in Syria’s Homs

A double suicide bombing killed at least 22 people Tuesday in the central Syrian city of Homs, state media said, in an attack claimed by the Islamic State group.

State television said another 100 people were wounded in the blasts in the Al-Zahraa neighbourhood of the city, which has been targeted in bomb attacks multiple times before.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, put the toll at 26 dead, including 16 members of regime forces.
