A mortar attack has killed at least 22 civilians and injured some 65 in ‘‘Latakia’‘:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latakia in Syria.

Death and destruction is a daily occurrence in Syria, but an attack on the Alawite stronghold of President Bashar al-Assad is unusual.


The mortar hit an area close to Tishreen University.

A Russian military base is located in the small town of Hmeymin some 4km from Latakia.


No one group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
