Foreign-backed terrorists have slain 14 people in the western Syrian city of Homs on the same day that car bombs killed at least 25 people in the city.
The victims, among them women and children, were shot to death in the city’s Karm al-Zeitoun neighborhood on Wednesday.
The official SANA news agency said an “armed terrorist group” was behind the attack.
Earlier on the same day, two car bombs had rocked a neighborhood where people support the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The car bombs detonated in a government-held district in Homs, killing at least 25 people and injuring over 100 others.
SANA said one explosive-laden car was blown up near a sweets shop in a busy street, and about half an hour later another such explosion took place about 100 meters away “in order to inflict the biggest number of casualties among citizens.”
Homs has been frequently attacked since the start of the foreign-backed militancy, which has gripped Syria for three years.
Syria has been plagued by relentless militancy since March 2011. Damascus says the West and its regional allies have been fuelling violence in the country by providing militants with money and weapons.
Over 130,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the violence fueled by Western-backed militants.
