Syrian Interior Minister promised to pursue terrorists who blew up a military bus in Damascus
Syrian Interior Minister Mohammad al-Rahmun has pledged to pursue terrorists who blew up a military bus in Damascus.
In the morning, terrorists set off two explosive devices in the central part of the city, and a Syrian army bus was destroyed. According to the army command, 14 soldiers became victims of the explosion, and several others were injured. The terrorist attack took place on the Rais (“Presidential”) bridge, which crosses the Barada River. It is located in the central part of the Syrian capital on a busy highway near the National Museum of Damascus and the famous Dama Rose and Four Seasons hotels.
“We will pursue the terrorists who carried out this explosion wherever they are,” the minister told state-run Syria TV.
This is the first major casualty attack in Damascus in the past few years. The last time a major terrorist attack took place in 2016 and 2017 in the southern part of the Syrian capital in the Shiite quarter of Seyid-Zeynab. In both cases, suicide bombers were involved. In 2016, about 20 people died and more than 40 were injured.
