Explosions Hit Near Bus Station in Syria's Latakia, Victims Reported
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, seven blasts hit the Mediterranean coastal cities of Jabla and Tartus, killing more than 100 people, according to local police.

"Firstly, the increase of tension and such terrorist activity is, undoubtedly, a cause for grave concern. Secondly, it once again demonstrates the fragility of the situation in Syria. And thirdly, it once again, perhaps, demonstrates the need to continue [taking] vigorous steps to proceed with the negotiation process," Peskov told reporters commenting on the explosions.

According to media reports, Daesh, a group prohibited in numerous countries including the United States and Russia, has taken responsibility for the attacks.
