Suicide Bombs in Pro-Assad Neighborhoods

The Nusra Front claims responsibility
Suicide Bombs in Pro-Assad Neighborhoods

Two suicide bombers detonated themselves in pro-Assad neighborhoods in Homs Monday, killing 10 people and wounding dozens.


The neighborhoods of Nuzha and Ekremah are predominantly Alawite and are considered as strongholds for pro-Assad loyalist 'Shabbiha' militia.


Activists said that the jihadist Nusra Front claimed responsibility for the attack in response to the continuous government offensive being waged on besieged areas of Homs.
