Just days after a deadly Assad regime chemical attack, a woman was killed and 25 others on a bus were wounded in a town south of the Syrian city of Homs on Saturday.

The sources said the bomb had gone off in Hassia, 40 km (25 miles) south of Homs, on a bus transporting workers.

The wounded were taken to the nearest healthcare centers by civilian defense teams.

On Tuesday, in a chemical attack blamed on the Assad regime, some 100 civilians were killed and 500 more injured.

Following the tragic incident in a town where tens of thousands used to live, most civilians began to leave their homes due to the risk of being poisoned by the chemicals left behind.
