Two injured in car bomb attack in Damascus
The latest attacks come amid rising tensions between the Syrian and Turkish regimes over Idlib.
An explosive device went off in a car in al-Marjeh area in Damascus on Thursday.
A source at the Interior Ministry told SANA that two persons were injured while they were passing-by the area when the IED blast occurred.
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) sources report that a medium-intensity explosion rocked the area of “Al-Marjeh” in the center of the capital Damascus.
SOHR said that the explosion was caused by an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated in a military vehicle belonging to regime forces in the area.
A car bomb attack in Bab Moussalla neighborhood of Damascus had injured five people on February 18.
A previous car bomb attack on February 10 did not result in injuries.
Having been hit by repeated attacks since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, the Syrian capital has witnessed less often attacks after the regime secured control over the area in 2018.
It grabs attention that the latest attacks come at a time of rising tensions between the Syrian and Turkish regimes over Idlib.
