One of the bombs detonated close to a hospital in the mainly Alawite neighborhood of al-Zahra in the east of Homs city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said, adding that the death toll was likely to rise.

 

Syrian state television described the attack as “two large terrorist explosions”.
