    Syrian special services on Monday detained a suicide bomber near a hospital in Jabla, in Latakia province, a local security source told Sputnik.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — Earlier on Monday, seven blasts hit the Mediterranean coastal cities of Jabla and Tartus, killing more than 100 people, according to local police.

    “Special forces arrested a suicide bomber who belongs to the terrorist group Ahrar ash-Sham. The terrorist planned to blow himself up near a hospital in Jabla,” the source said.

    Media reports suggest Daesh terrorist group has taken responsibility for the attacks.
