    One child has been killed and seven civilians have been injured as a result of a car bomb detonated in the city of Homs in western Syria on Friday.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — A child died and seven civilians were injured as extremists detonated a car bomb in the city of Homs in western Syria on Friday, the governor of the city told Sputnik.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with the government fighting against many insurgent and extremist groups. The city of Homs has been a hotspot for hostilities between the armed groups of opposition and government forces since the start of the conflict.

    “One child has been killed and seven civilians have been injured as a result of blasting a car bomb near a reservoir in the Armenian quarter in Homs,” the city governor, Talal Barazi said.

    The explosion also damaged a number of houses and shops in the area, and set on fire several cars parked near the site of the terror attack, he added.

    The attack represents an attempt to destabilize the security regime established in the city, the governor said.
