Blasts Hit 2 Syrian Cities in Assad Stronghold, Killing Scores

BEIRUT, Lebanon — A series of coordinated blasts struck two cities in northwestern Syria on Monday, rare attacks that killed dozens in a part of the country seen as a stronghold of President Bashar al-Assad and his forces.

Syrian state television broadcast images from the cities of Jableh and Tartus of shattered buildings, ambulances and firefighters rushing about, as well as blood spots on the ground. The Syrian state news agency, SANA, said 78 people had been killed.
