A car bomb attack has rocked the coastal town of Jablah in Syria’s western province of Latakia, reportedly leaving over a dozen people dead and scores wounded.
According to Syrian media, the blast took place at a crowded commercial sector of Jablah, an Alawite-majority town on the Mediterranean coast, on Thursday, causing damage to scores of cars and shops in the area.
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 15 were killed in the attack. However, Syria’s official SANA news agency put the number of those killed at 11, saying 35 more were also wounded.
No group has claimed responsibility for the bloody terror attack, which comes despite a ceasefire holding across the Arab country.
