A series of deadly blasts killed scores of people in the coastal cities of Jableh and Tartus, in Syria's Latakia province, Monday. Footage filmed in Tartus shows the aftermath of the explosions that hit the city, and the clear-up operation that ensued.
At least five suicide bomb attacks and two car bombs struck the coastal towns on Monday. In Jableh, the attacks began with a car bomb at a bus station, followed by three suicide bombs.
Over 120 people have reportedly been killed from the blasts in the two towns, which currently held by the Syrian government forces.
The self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for Monday's attacks in the coastal towns. Latakia province is home to both Russia's Hmeymim airbase and the Tartus naval base.
