AS IT IS 2015-12-30 Deadly Bombings in Homs, Syria 叙利亚霍姆斯发生汽车爆炸事件 32人死亡

Up to 32 people were killed in two bomb attacks Monday in the Syrian city of Homs, near the border with Lebanon.

The second attack killed people who gathered to see the damage of an earlier car bomb. A suicide bomber1 entered the crowd and exploded a bomb hidden in clothing.

The attacks took place in the al-Zahraa district, in the central part of the city. State-controlled media say 19 people were killed in the two bombings. The Syrian Observatory2 for Human Rights says 32 people were killed. Many others were hurt.

It was the second major attack in Homs since the government and rebel forces reached a cease-fire agreement this month. The government will take back areas of the city controlled by rebels.

On December 12, two bombings killed at least 16 people. Those attacks also took place in the al-Zahraa district. The Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The Wall Street Journal newspaper reports that many people who live in the neighborhood are members of the Alawite sect3. President Bashar al-Assad and top members of his government belong to the sect. The newspaper reports the area is often “attacked by anti-government rebels armed with rockets and vehicle bombs.”

Separately, rebels and others began leaving three Syrian towns this week under a humanitarian4 agreement reached in September. The agreement between the government of President Bashar al-Assad and the rebels who oppose him is supported by the United Nations.

On Monday, more than 120 rebels, and others who are hurt, began leaving the town of Zabadani. It is the last area rebels control in Syria near the border with Lebanon. The Syrian Observatory said they were being moved to areas in Syria controlled by opponents of the government.

Also on Monday, a group of 335 people, including civilians5, moved from two government-controlled villages in northwestern Syria to other government-held areas.

UN voted on Syrian peace plan

On December 18, all members of the U.N. Security Council voted to approve a plan for peace in Syria. It was a rare unanimous vote.

Staffan de Mistura is the U.N. peace negotiator for Syria. Saturday, he said he hoped to begin peace talks January 25. He said the talks would include members of the different Syrian opposition6 groups and others. He said the talks would require the “full cooperation” of all those involved in the conflict if they are to succeed.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and others have said ending the civil war in Syria is the most important step in defeating the Islamic State group and bringing stability to the area.

More than 250,000 people have died in the Syrian conflict since it began in 2011. More than 4 million people have fled the country.
