At least 30 people were killed and 45 other injured in multiple of bombings in Syrian government controlled areas, SANA reported on Monday.

Blasts in the coastal city of Tartus, the central city of Homs, the suburbs of the capital Damascus, and the northeastern city of Hasakeh killed 23 people and injured 45 others so far.

Attackers detonated two bombs at the entrance of the government stronghold of Tartus along the international coastal highway killed five.

Another car bomb at the Arzoneh Bridge was followed by a suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt who targeted the gathering crowd. The city, a stronghold of support for President Bashar Assad, is home to a major Russian naval base in Suria's Latakia.

The Governor of Homs province said a car bomb struck a military checkpoint in the provincial capital, Homs, killing two soldiers and injuring four others, one critically.

The city, Syria’s third largest, is largely under government control, with only one neighbourhood still under terroris group control. Monday’s bomb exploded in the government-held Bab Tadmor district.

In the northeastern city of Hasakeh an attacker detonated his motorcycle at the Marsho roundabout, killing five.

Government military forces withdrew from the city in August after some disagreements and under a deal with the Kurdish YPG forces. The YPG and its political wing, the PYD, inherited control of the city, though the state’s police force remained.

SANA also reported an explosion in the Sabbourah suburb of the capital, Damascus.

According to a government source, the current death toll from the terrorist blasts that took place inside the Homs, Al-Hasakah, Tartous, and Damascus governorates is 23.

The source added that the death toll from each province is the following:

In Damascus 3 civilians killed, in Al-Hasakah 5 civilians killed , in Homs 4 killed including 2 civilians and 2 soldiers and in Tartous 11 civilians killed.

Dozens of civilians are currently being treated inside a number of Syrian hospitals for their injuries sustained during these terrorist attacks.

According to latest record of casualties announced by Syrian government 30 people killed and 45 other injured.
