At least 30 people were killed in four bomb attacks that hit a southern suburb of Damascus on Sunday, pro-government media outlets and a monitoring group said.

Syrian state media put the toll at 30 people. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was at least 31 with dozens more injured.

Al Manar media, which is run by Damascus ally Lebanese Hizbullah, gave an initial count of 22 killed.

State media said the blasts hit near the Al-Sadr hospital in Sayeda Zeinab.

These explosions came just hours after a twin bomb attack in the city of Homs killed at least 46 people, according to the Observatory.

Last month, suicide attacks in the district claimed by Islamic State killed 60 people.
