Terrorist attack in homs: how it was



One of the worst terrorist attacks during the Syrian confrontation occurred on April 9 in the city of Homs. In Karm Al-Loz quarter on Al-Khudari Street, in a busy area where people go to buy oriental sweets and other goods, an explosion of a mined car thundered around 4 one o'clock in the afternoon. After some time, a little bit more mined car flew off in the same street.

There is a school in this area, and there could be an incredible number of victims among the children, but the schoolchildren were lucky - as the residents of the block say, the lessons ended a little earlier than usual, and the children quickly ran away. A few minutes after that, the first explosion occurred.
Such tactics are common for Islamist extremists, it has been known since the days of Afghanistan. First there is one explosion. Then, people — relatives and friends of those killed and injured — rescuers, journalists, doctors, and just onlookers, come running to the scene of the incident. And at this time, the second "hellish car" explodes, seeking new victims.



First, 20 dead were reported, then their number exceeded 25. Hundreds of people were injured, and among those affected are those who are in critical condition. The journalist of the Syrian news agency SANA suffered as well - he came to remove the consequences of the first explosion.

A huge pile of garbage has turned the product from the many shops. Concrete floors have collapsed in many apartments. Dozens of cars parked on the street, turned into trash.



In the place of the terrorist attack we find a man who speaks Russian — once studied in the Soviet Union. After seeing journalists from Russia, he comes up. He suffered on his head - already treated wound. But his brother suffered even more. The man shares his impressions, says that the first explosion was of tremendous power. The second is also far from the weak. There were a lot of wounded people, and the whole evening the ambulance signals were buzzing. “But here’s the brother’s car,” the victim said sadly, pointing at the black pile of scrap metal, which the bulldozer was approaching.





However, most of the injured required hospitalization. Near the hospital - dozens of relatives of the dead and injured. The bodies of the fallen are still in the hospital corridor, some cannot be identified. Among the victims of a terrible crime are women and children.





We go to the wards, to the wounded. One girl, lying in a hospital bed, smiles courageously. She was sitting on the balcony when she suddenly woke up on the ground, among a pile of ruins ... Her face was injured, her eye was bruised.

But many victims are unconscious. I want to believe that they will survive.





It would be necessary to reduce to the place of this terrorist act those politicians who make criminal decisions to support the "opposition". It would be necessary to carry out their hospital corridor, where the corpses lie. To force to look into the tear-stained eyes of mothers, wives and other relatives of the fallen. And ask - will you still argue that the "rebels" in Syria are fighting for democracy?

On the same day in Damascus, the mortar al-Qabbas was bombarded by terrorists from a mortar. Two citizens suffered. And in Aleppo, people were also injured due to the shelling of the city hall building, and great material damage was caused.

10 in April in the Syrian capital in the quarter of Al-Kassa gangsters fired at the hospital and residential buildings. One person died, three injured. As a result of the shelling of the school in the Duel quarter, a child died and several more people were injured. In the Mezze-86 area, four people were injured because of the shelling of the dining room. In addition, several more shells hit residential buildings, causing damage.

In the city of Jaraman, 20 mortar shells exploded, 22 people were injured.

And again, in Homs, along the Al-Hamra quarter, a shell was also hit; nine people were wounded by shrapnel.

Syrian Foreign Ministry appealed to the UN Security Council with a demand to condemn the terrible terrorist attack in Homs.

"The silence of the Security Council over terrorist crimes in Syria and the support of those who commit them raise legitimate questions about the danger of the double standards policy pursued by some of the permanent members of the Security Council regarding manifestations of terrorism and their consequences threatening international agreements on combating terrorism all over the world, ”said a message from the Syrian Foreign Ministry to the UN Security Council and the UN Secretary General.



All that remains is to join this demand and petition the Russian Foreign Ministry for the issue of condemning the monstrous crime to be put before the UN Security Council. Most likely, the Western countries, as usual, will do everything to prevent the adoption of such a resolution condemning the terrorists. But in the conditions of the information war against Russia, this will be just one more trump card against those countries that are guided by double standards, support terrorism and turn a blind eye to the terrible atrocities of the Syrian militants.

    “It would be necessary to bring to the place of this terrorist act those politicians who make criminal decisions to support the“ opposition. ”It would be necessary to lead them through the hospital corridor where the corpses lie. Make them look into the tear-stained eyes of the mothers, wives and other relatives of the fallen. And ask - will you still argue that the "rebels" in Syria are fighting for democracy? "

    It is all useless. They do not see what they do not want to see and do not hear, what they do not want to hear. Without such an attribute of the organism, Western politicians simply cannot exist in their politics.

      Yes, I agree with you - it’s better then to insert a grenade directly into their Euro point and pull out the check - and then ask - how do you like terrorism

    Damn, why such a narrow lane is not controlled, especially where there is such a huge crowd of people, you can control the flow of cars for anyone, or not let them in there for 100 meters at least.

        I get angry and cry, how mean it is, etc. Thank you very much Elena for your work, take care of yourself, we cheer for you. Well, I'm talking about such market lanes, or is there all of Syria trading in all yards?

          Thank you.
          Actually, yes, there are many market lanes.
          Here in Damascus, where the attacks at one time were very frequent, somehow learned to deal with them. But at the cost of the fact that many streets are blocked, there are a lot of roadblocks, check the boot, in the end - permanent traffic jams. In the center, you will generally get faster on foot somewhere than by transport. But the last very large-scale terrorist attack was last spring on Saba Bahrat. Now they are less, however, mortars do not give rest.
          And in Homs, sometime before, the bandits focused on the fighting, defended the part they occupied. But now there is little left - many quarters that were in their hands have now been cleaned. Well, once the battles are lost, it means that terrorist attacks begin. A terrorist attack of this magnitude for Homs is generally the first time.

            Clear. Maybe I’ll tell you out of place, but it reminds me how in politics the West and Europe press their tail in an honest fight with Russia, then they start throwing vile sanctions.

      Valentine, in this situation, you know how many trained people you need to have in order to control each lane properly? There are not enough people specifically. There is a catastrophic lack of power to maintain order, even in controlled areas. And yet, a settlement under control doesn’t mean anything. the country’s civil war, and on the faces of people it’s not written who for whom. All the sabotage and terrorist activities described in the article are considered guerrilla activities as militants
      I’m only interested in one thing. Those areas where militants control settlements and cities. There are no acts against them. This makes me wonder.

          Well, dropping barrel bombs on settlements, without aiming from a high-flying helicopter, is also not a humanitarian action. Civilians are also killed. Even if you want, it’s impossible to hit the positions of militants in this way. So that these or other methods bring harm only to civilians.
          The specifics of the East are as follows. If a relative died, regardless of what, at the hands of the militants or the authorities, those who survived try to take revenge. That’s why and how many fighters do not kill, their ranks are replenished, and the method of warfare becomes more cruel and more bloody It’s even difficult to call it a war. It’s already a mutual washcloth.

            Bombs are dropped only where there has long been no civilian population - it is either driven out or slaughtered by bandits. And where the terrorists use the inhabitants as human shields, the army does not use weapons, which is why the liberation of these areas is delayed.

              Something is not visible that the inhabitants of this city are cut out. Look carefully there are even children. Ms. Gromova, 100% cannot say that there are no civilians there. A barrel bomb is not a precision weapon to be used to destroy fortified areas, since the means deliveries fly too high and are not equipped with precision bombardment facilities. But you may not know this, you are a person far from military science and simply do not know what it is. hi

        Well, yes, no one has canceled corruption and betrayal, in principle, you can also mine under the control of the militants of the territory and blackmail the army that they say all the victims of the region are on your conscience, maybe someone is hostage to them, because they feel calm there. Of course, everything can be in a war.

          Certainly. War is war and there is no synchronicity. But all the same, the lack of resistance is proved by the fact that a certain part of the population, moreover a considerable amount, supports the actions of the militants. This is a fact, an action.
          And there are no hostages there. Those who collaborated and fought against the militants are simply killed on the spot. And the prisoners are exchanged for their own, moreover, those who are of some value during the exchange are left alive. This is a widespread practice. Separate groups even finance themselves in this way .All the same, the Civil War is the most vile of all wars.

    The recipe for fighting terrorism is well known - no negotiations. Only an assault and no courts, lawyers or other liberal values. Muslim terrogyug - hang, lard feeding. They will not be enough for a long time. The instigators and sponsors of the CIA - wet, can be in the outhouse
