Homs, SANA-Upon the directives of President Bashar al-Assad, Assistant Regional Secretary of al-Baath Arab Socialist Party Hilal al-Hilal offered condolences to the families of martyrs and wounded citizens in the two terrorist explosions that hit Homs on Wednesday.
Two terrorist bombings hit an area near a school compound in Ikrima neighborhood in Homs city as children were leaving school, leaving 33 dead and more than 115 wounded, mostly children.
Al-Hilal inspected the site of the two explosions and the volume of damages, meeting the teaching staff and visiting the wounded in the hospitals of al-Zae’em, al-Razi and al-Nahda.
