Single day of bombings kill over 100 in Syria

23 May 2016, 12:53

Beirut - A spate of bombings in two Syrian regime stronghold cities killed over 100 people and wounded at least 120 on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Thirty-four people were killed in three bombings - at least two of them suicide attacks - in the Mediterranean coastal city of Tartus, the monitoring group said.

Another 38 died in four bombings, three of them suicide blasts, in Jableh further north, the Observatory said.

The Islamic State jihadist group has claimed responsibility for the blasts, the IS-affiliated Amaq news agency said.

"Attacks by IS fighters hit Alawite gatherings in Tartus and Jableh on the Syria coast," the news agency said on Twitter, referring to the minority from which President Bashar al-Assad hails.
