Bus Carrying Military Personnel Explodes

Fourteen military personnel have been killed while three others were left injured in a bomb attack on Wednesday morning.

Gatekeepers News reports that the bus carrying troops in the Syrian capital Damascus exploded during rush hour when people were heading to work and school.

Syrian state TV said two explosive devices went off as the bus was near the Hafez al-Assad bridge, adding a third device was defused by an army engineering unit in what officials said was a “terrorist” blast.

“It is a cowardly act,” Damascus police commander Major General Hussein Jumaa told state TV, adding that a police force had cordoned off the area immediately and made sure there were no more bombs. He urged people to inform authorities about any suspicious object they see.

Gatekeepers News News reports that Wednesday’s attack is the deadliest in the capital since a bombing claimed by ISIL hit the Justice Palace in March 2017, killing at least 30 people.
