Two cars explode in Syria in less than 24 hours

On Sunday two car bombs exploded near the headquarters of the Syrian state television in central Damascus, near Umayyad Square.

The cars were driven by two suicide bombers who detonated the devices, each one carrying approximately 100 kg of explosive. No casualties were reported beyond the two terrorists.

Footage of the scene shown by the government-run Al-Ikhbariya TV showed fire burning and smoke rising over the site as firefighters worked to put them out.

On Monday a second car bomb hit a street market in the town of Darkush, in the Idlib province, near the border with Turkey, killing twenty-seven people including three children.

In the last three months Syria has been hit by a wave of car bombs that have spread fear among the population. On September 27th a car bomb killed twenty people and wounded about a hundred in Rankus, 30 km north of Damascus.

On September 24th another car bomb exploded in the southern Tadamon suburb of Damascus, killing seven civilians.

On August 6th another car bomb hit the mainly Christian and Druze Damascus suburb of Jamarana, killing eighteen people.

Suspicion falls on the Islamic State of Iraq jihadi group who has often used the car bomb strategy to hit civilian targets  in Syria and Iraq with the intent of spreading fear and a sense of insecurity among the population.
