Foreign-sponsored insurgents have detonated a car bomb in Salamiyeh city in west central Hama Governorate, claiming the lives of at least four citizens and injuring nine others.

The terrorist bombing on Saturday targeted four trucks carrying Syrian Red Crescent humanitarian aid workers on the Hama-Salamiyeh road, Syrian news agency SANA reported, citing a source in Hama Police Command.

The source added that the civilians killed in the terror blast included the driver of one of the relief aid trucks and that the bombing also inflicted material damages to properties of local citizens as well as markets and private vehicles. 

In yet another terrorist attack in the city of Homs, al-Ahli hospital in the al-Zahra neighborhood was targeted with two rocket shells, killing one civilian and wounding 10 others in addition to causing material damages to properties in the area.

Also in Homs, terrorists blew up another car bomb near Ka’ab al-Akhbar mosque in Jeb al-Jandali neighborhood, causing yet unknown number of casualties, according to the SANA report.

The terrorist attacks against civilian targets by foreign-sponsored insurgents in Syria come amid steady military gains in the battle fields by the Syrian Army across the Arab country.
