IS claims responsibility for bombings in Syria

Damascus, Oct 4 (IANS) The Islamic State (IS) terrorist group said it was behind the three bombings which killed at least two persons and injured 12 others on Monday in Syria’s central city of Hama.

According to the group’s Amaq news agency, three suicide bombers detonated their explosive belts at the headquarters of the ruling al-Baath party and a police station near the al-Assi Square, the main square in the city.

The short dispatch from Amaq provided no further details, Xinhua reported.

The IS has claimed responsibility for much of the bombings that rocked government-controlled areas in Syria, the latest of which was last month in Tartus, where dozens of people were killed.

The bombings on Monday are believed to be the first to hit the Hama area in the country’s five-year-old conflict.

Hama is the among the very few cities that have not witnessed much violence during the country’s long-running civil war, save for some spots in its countryside.
