A pair of bombings carried out by a single suicide attack tore through a primary school in the Syrian city of Homs today, killing 48 people including 41 schoolchildren.
The attacks took place at the end of the school day, and appear to have been timed to hit the crowd of children leaving class. In addition to the slain, 56 others were reported wounded.
So far, no specific rebel faction has claimed responsibility for the attack, though the most likely suspects would be ISIS or Jabhat al-Nusra, which have both regularly used suicide attacks.
The school in Homs is in the middle of an Alawite neighborhood. An offshoot of Shi’ite Islam, the Alawites are of the same sect as President Bashar Assad, and have often been the targets of rebel attacks.

Their God is only merciful when these barbarians kill children, Christians, beheading Kurdish people and others, otherwise in essence they are still Saudis barbarians, the eligitimat sons of Saudis/Qatari/UAE, used by USG and other for their policies.
41 children? Where is the outrage? Oh, it didn’t happened in the US.
Imagine the outrage if a 'Christian' had done this.
Do we know if the bomber was a "moderate" or not. I'm sure that would make a big difference to the parents of the 41 children. If not for our government support of weapons and cash the problems in Syria would have never reached this level. We Americans should be wearing paper bags over our heads to indicate our embarrassment that we have either lost control of our own Government or because we really support these interventions. Either way it's disgraceful.
Suicide attacks where there were previously none. Until Obama's apes came to town. These were America's allies until only very recently when it became politically expedient to start bombing them.
Amazing, the pieces of sh!t all the major people responsible for this carnage are, never held responsible, never punished.
What a wonderful time to be living, technologically the 21st century, but morally and spiritually a total dead end where scumbags get away with murder, doing the bidding of the powerful who themselves should be executed.
