At least one soldier was killed and 11 others received injuries when an explosion rocked a military bus in Syria’s capital city of Damascus on Tuesday morning.
The state-run news agency SANA reported that the “terrorist attack” targeted the bus near the Customs Roundabout in Damascus at about 7:25 am local time.
Syria has been plunged into civil war for many years, but attacks in Damascus were rare in the past, but it seems to have increased recently.
On 20 of October, 14 soldiers were killed, and several others were wounded when two explosive devices attached to a military bus were detonated at Jisr al-Raees, Damascus.
The attack was claimed by the Al Qaeda-linked Qasiyun Brigades, a sleeper cell group that operates in and around the Syrian capital.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the number of injured people at 14 soldiers, in which five of them are reported to be in serious conditions.
The injured personnel have been transferred to Al-Mouwasat hospital in Al-Mezzeh area.
