At least 35 people have been killed and 30 others injured in a twin bombing in the Syrian city of Palmyra in the province of Homs.


The bombs detonated near a military security branch in the city's countryside on Wednesday, Xinhua reported.

The incident occurred amid ongoing clashes between Syrian military forces and foreign-backed militants at the entrance of Jobar, a suburb of the capital Damascus.

There were also reports of clashes in the suburbs of the southern town of Zamalka.

On Sunday, Syrian government forces clashed with a group of armed men, who were trying to enter the city of Talkalakh, located 49 kilometers (30 miles) west of the city of Homs.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

Several international human rights organizations say the foreign-sponsored militants have committed war crimes.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants fighting the Syrian government are foreign nationals.
