A Syrian government official informed that two suicide car bombs killed at least 30 people, mostly civilians in Damascus. Around a 100 people were wounded during the Friday attack on two security facilities in the Kfar Sousa district.
State media informed that the preliminary investigations suggest that an al-Qaeda cell may have been responsible for the attack. These blasts are the first of such attacks in the Syrian capital since the beginning of the uprising against president Bashar al-Assad.
State media informed that recently the capital has been relatively quiet; this attack makes the government appear vulnerable. (AV)
