Today an explosion in a restaurant in Damascus left five people dead, according to the Syrian state media report, the blast struck the Qaboun district in the capital of Syria.
The government of Bashar al-Assad has branded it as a “terrorist” attack, a term used by the regime to refer itself to the Syrian opposition groups. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights informed that the bomb exploded off just after midnight. However there is still no information as to who was behind such attack.
This blast is the latest one in a series of explosions that have destroyed the embattled country over the last couple of weeks. The uprising against the Syrian president has become increasingly militarized and violent in the last few months, in spite of the ceasefire imposed by the UN. (AV)
