A trail of death was left in the wake of terrorist mortar and car bomb attacks that hit Damascus and Homs on Tuesday, causing a death toll of 50, in addition to scores of wounded.

A car bomb blast rocked the city of Homs, claiming the lives of 36 civilians, mostly women and children, according to a source in the province.

The source told SANA reporter that the bombing, which took place near the heavily-trafficked al-Abassiyeh intersection, injured 85 others.

Terrorists’ mortars claim 14 civilians, mostly students, in Damascus

Terrorists\' mortars continued to rain down on Damascus as four rounds hit al-Shaghour neighborhood, two of which smashed into Badr-Eddin al-Hossni Institute for Islamic Sharia Sciences, killing 14 civilians, a Police Command source told SANA.

86 others, mostly students, were reported wounded in the attack.

The other two rounds landed in the surrounding of the Institute, hurting no one.

The source added that terrorists targeted al-Abassiyeen area with 9 mortar shells which landed in the surrounding of al-Abassiyeen Stadium, injuring 8 other civilians.

Minister of Health Saad al-Nayef paid a visit to the injured in Damascus Hospital and stressed that medical cadres were mobilized to provide emergency and rescue services to the injured as soon as possible.

He told reporters that he directed medical teams to meet all the needs of the injured until they recover and become able to leave hospital.
