A string of bomb attacks hit mostly government-controlled areas of Syria on Monday, killing several dozen people including at least 35 in President Bashar al-Assad’s coastal stronghold of Tartus, state media said.

At least 48 people died in the multiple blasts, with dozens also wounded in the double bombing outside of Tartus city, which is home to a Russian naval base.

Other attacks hit government-held Homs city, an army checkpoint on a road outside Damascus, and a Kurdish security forces checkpoint in Hasakah city.
