Syria..Dead and wounded in the bombing of a “bus overnight” in the heart of Damascus


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Syrian capital, Damascus, witnessed an explosion targeting a bus belonging to the Syrian army, which resulted in injuries and deaths, according to what was reported by the official Syrian News Agency (SANA) on Wednesday.

SANA’s reporter stated that a “terrorist” explosion took place in the Al-Rais Bridge area (a complex of transport buses and microbuses) in the heart of the Syrian capital, Damascus, targeting a “sleeping bus”.

The reporter confirmed that the engineering units of the Syrian army succeeded in dismantling a third explosive device that had been planted near the site of the first explosion.

Thirteen people were killed and 3 wounded as a result of this explosion, which is considered the first of its kind in the heart of the capital, Damascus, since last August, when another overnight bus exploded in the Guards residences in Damascus.

Video footage published by the official Syrian Agency showed the bus completely charred as firefighting units were trying to cool it.
