    The Syrian Cabinet condemned a series of Monday terror attacks on the Syrian western cities of Jabla and Tartus, local media reported citing the government's statement.

    BEIRUT (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.

    According to the Syrian SANA news agency, the Cabinet also denounced a suicide attack in Syria's northeastern town of Qamishli, which killed at least five people on Sunday, and shelling of areas in the northwestern Aleppo province, including the city of Aleppo, Nubbul, Zahraa, as well as attacks on southwestern city of Daraa.

    Islamic State, a group prohibited in numerous countries including the United States and Russia, has reportedly taken responsibility for the attacks.
