syriaMore than 150 people were reportedly killed and at least 200 injured in a series of bombings in Jableh and Tartous on Country’s Mediterranean coast yesterday in the government controlled territory that hosts Russian military bases. Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, 148 people were killed in attacks by at least five suicide bombers and two devices planted in cars. State media had said, 78 people had been killed in what is President Bashar al-Assad’s coastal heartland. The attacks were the first of their kind in the capital of Tartous province and home to a Russian naval facility, and in Jableh in Latakia province, near a Russian-operated air base.

Meanwhile, the Kremlin said, Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated his readiness to fight with the Syrian government against the terrorist threat and sent his condolences to Mr Assad. The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the United Nations, saying the blasts were a dangerous escalation by the hostile and extremist regimes in Riyadh, Ankara and Doha, referring to support given to the rebels by Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the attacks. The International Committee of the Red Cross also condemned this latest attack on healthcare.
