A Syrian official reported two suicide attacks on separate gas facilities in Homs, reports the Associated Press.
Although eight people were killed and 12 injured from the two incidences, it is reported that the facilities have returned to normal operations.
Syria’s state news agency SANA reported that the attackers detonated their suicide bombs prior to reaching the targets when guards began shooting them as they approached the plants.
The Associated press states no claims of responsibility have been made, but infrastructure attacks by opposition fighters and terrorist groups are common in the area.
