Syria: 40 Die in ISIS Bombings as U.S. & Russia Fail to Reach Ceasefire Deal

HeadlineSep 06, 2016

In Syria, at least 40 people have died in a wave of suicide bombings across government-held areas. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks in Tartus, Homs, Hasakah and in a suburb of Damascus. The deadly blasts came after President Obama met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday alongside the G20 summit, and after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov met on Sunday and failed to secure an agreement for a ceasefire in Syria. The U.S. and Russia are backing opposite sides of the war between Syrian rebels and the Syrian government, although both countries have said they are fighting ISIS in Syria.
