Islam Times - At least seven civilians have been killed on Tuesday after a bomb attack hit the Syrian city of Homs.


According to state-run Ikhbariya television, 16 people were also injured in the Akrama neighborhood where “A bomb that terrorists planted in a passenger bus exploded,”

“Security agencies are constantly chasing sleeper cells,” Homs’ police chief told the TV channel.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far, but such terrorist attacks are usually carried out by the Takfiri militant groups active in the area.

ISIS claimed responsibility for a similar attack in Homs in May, when a car bomb killed four people and injured 32 others.

Syrian army troops and allied fighters have been fighting against different foreign-backed terrorist groups wreaking havoc in the Arab country since 2011. The Syrian forces have made sweeping gains against Takfiri elements over the past few months.
