Recommended Posts


Report by Hezbollah-owned TV station comes after 2 booby-trapped cars blew up at Syrian security sites in Damascus; Syria TV: Initial probe links al-Qaida to attack.

Two car bomb attacks on Syrian security sites in Damascus earlier Friday killed 30 people and wounded 55 others, most of them civilian, the Lebanese news channel Al Manar said. The Hezbollah-owned TV station cited information from its own correspondents on the ground.

Earlier Friday, Syria state television reported that two booby-trapped cars blew up at Syrian security sites in Damascus, saying that "terrorist attacks left a number of martyrs, both civilian and military. Most of the victims were civilian," Syrian TV said in a news flash.

Syrian television also claimed that initial investigations indicated that al Qaida was behind the attacks. A witness from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said he heard heavy gunfire break out after the blasts.
