Bus carrying Turks attacked in Syria

This ought to do wonders for Assad's relations with Turkey. A bus carrying Turkish civilians was attacked on Monday in Syria.
Turkey's Foreign Ministry says a bus carrying Turks has come under armed attack in Syria.

The Foreign Ministry said Monday that according to initial reports the attack occurred near the central city of Homs, where Syrian activists reported at least nine people killed by security forces on Sunday.

The daily Vatan newspaper's website, without citing sources, says the bus was carrying pilgrims. IHA news agency says the driver of the bus was injured in the attack but it managed to reach the Turkish border.
Can someone explain to me why anyone from another country would be visiting Syria now? Pilgrims to where?
