Twin terrorist attacks killed 45 civilians and wounded over 100 others today in the Homs Governate; most of the victims were reportedly women and children. The explosion was heard all across the provincial capital, where citizens and government employees rushed to the aide of the wounded and dead. Chaos followed the explosion, as many parents franticly rushed to the school in order to identify their loved ones.

The first terrorist attack took place when a car bomb loaded with 3 gas cylinders and 7kg of C-4 explosives was detonated by the perpetrators at the Akrama Al-Makhzoumi School in the Akrama Neighborhood of Homs. Following the first explosion, a suicide bomber then detonated another bomb at this school, creating a much larger explosion that destroyed much of the school. Akrama has been targeted by terrorists in the past due to their predominately ‘Alawi presence.

According to a security source, the suspects responsible for this heinous crime were arrested in the Tal Kalakh District on the border of Lebanon. At least 11 men were apprehended by Syrian Intelligence officers; it is still unclear what presence they played in this crime. However, the 11 suspects were members of the Syrian rebel group, “Jund Al-Sham” – a group linked to the ‘Abdullah Azzam Brigades. No further details were provided.
