11 killed, dozens injured in bombings in Damascus, Hasakah

At least 11 Syrian people have been killed and dozens of others injured in bomb attacks in the Syrian provinces of Damascus and Hasakah.

According to reports, a bomb planted in a vehicle detonated near a mosque in the town of Tal al-Tabeen on the outskirts of the capital, Damascus, on Wednesday, killing at least 10 people and injuring dozens of others.

Elsewhere, in the northeastern city of Hasakah, a car bomb went off at the headquarters of the Kurdish fighters at Sinalco Square, while another one detonated near a pediatric hospital.

According to local sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, at least one Syrian was killed and 13 others, including children and women, suffered injuries in the attacks.

Also, two other terrorists detonated the explosive devices they were carrying at the headquarters of a unit of the Syrian army in the city. There has been no report on the number of casualties in the incident.

Meanwhile, an explosive device went off near a school in the Anaba neighborhood in the western Syrian port city of Lattakia, causing material damage but no casualties.

No group or individual has yet claimed responsibility for the bomb attacks.

At least four civilians were killed and several others injured in a car bomb attack carried out by foreign-sponsored militants in Syria’s southwestern province of Dara’a on June 22.

On June 21, a police source, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said a bomber wearing an explosive vest blew himself up inside the Hadaya Hotel in al-Qamishli city, located on the border with Turkey and 680 kilometers (420 miles) northeast of Damascus, killing one person and injuring 11 others.

The source added that the terrorist killed the guard at the hotel gate before sneaking into its basement to carry out the attack. Local authorities identified the attacker as a Saudi national.
Syria has been witnessing a deadly crisis since March 2011. Western powers and some of their regional allies – especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey – are logistically and financially backing the militants. The conflict has reportedly left more than 230,000 people, including almost 11,500 children, dead up until now.
