Two Suicide Attacks Hit Military Posts in Homs

Damascus, February 25 (QNA) - Twin suicide attacks on military installations in Syria's western city of Homs on Saturday, killing at least 14 people and wounding many others.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that loud explosions and gunfire were heard following the assault in the city in the early hours of the morning, adding that the attacks hit the headquarters of state security and military intelligence in two central districts.

A senior intelligence officer was among the dead after the attacks in the heavily guarded Ghouta and Mahatta neighbourhoods. Security forces locked down the city center.

It was unclear what group the assailants belonged to.

The attacks come as peace negotiators continue talks for the second day in Geneva over Syria's six-year-old civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people. (QNA)
