Syrian Intelligence Prevented Terrorist Attack In Homs City (Photos)

Support SouthFront

The Syrian Military Intelligence Directorate (SMID) foiled a terrorist attack in the central city of Homs in the early hours of April 11.

Local sources said that intelligence agents dismantled a remotely-controlled heavy improvised-explosive device (IED) that was attached to a civilian vehicle near the Akramah al-Makhzomeh Elementary School. The attack perpetrators were reportedly apprehended in a special operation.

No group has claimed responsibility for the failed attack. However, the IED’s remote control appears to be identical to the ones usually used by ISIS cells.

The attackers likely planned to detonate the IED near the entrance of the Akramah al-Makhzomeh Elementary School. On October 1 of 2014, a double-tap terrorist attack targeted the school killing more than 45 civilians, mostly women and children.

In the last three years, ISIS sleeper cells and other terrorist groups made several attempts to carry out attacks in government-held areas. However, the Syrian military, security forces and intelligence managed to foil most of these attempts.
