Damascus   –     A bomb went off on Tuesday inside a bus in a Government-held area in Central Syria, killing at least eight people, a war monitor Group and State media reported.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights added that the blast took place inside a small passenger bus on the outskirts of al-Nouzaha Akrama neighbourhood in the central province of Homs.

Pro-government Al Elkhbaria TV said the blast left eight people dead and 16 injured – all civilians.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

In May, six people were killed in a suicide bombing in the Homs city’s predominantly Alawite al-Zahra district.

Homs city is the capital of the province of the same name.

That attack was claimed by the Islamic State extremist militia.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad belongs to the Alawite sect.

In recent months, al-Assad’s forces, supported by Russia, have made major territorial gains against the West-backed opposition and militant groups, including Islamic State.
