DAMASCUS: Syrian state television and an official say two bombs have exploded in government-held neighborhoods in the central city of Homs, wounding more than two dozen people.
The TV report said the first attack Sunday was a car bomb outside a school that wounded 27 passers-by.
A local official in Homs said Sunday’s second blast was a bomb placed inside a taxi that wounded five students from Homs’ Baath University on the busy Tijara Street. The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he wasn’t authorized to speak to journalists.
No one immediately claimed the bombings, though government-held neighborhoods in Homs have been targeted by repeated explosions that killed and wounded dozens over the past months.
Syria’s civil war, now in its fifth year, has killed more than 220,000 people.
