Multiple explosions rocked Damascus on Tuesday, killing several and injuring both military officials and civilians, Al-Arabiya and Syrian Breaking News Network reported
Al-Arabiya reported that a huge blast hit the Palestine Branch of Syrian Intelligence earlier Tuesday, claiming that several people, including high-ranking officers, were killed.
The Damascus Revolutionary Council and the Prophet’s Grandchildren Brigades both claimed responsibility for the bombing.
“Dozens of officers and shabbiha [regime militias] were killed in the blast,” the Prophet’s Grandchildren Brigades told Al-Arabiya.
Syrian Breaking News Network reported that militants planted a bomb in front of the School of Martyrs’ Children, near the Damascus International Airport. Four civilians were reportedly injured.
In a conflicting account, Reuters reported that two coordinated blasts involving seven devices went off at the school, which is a known meeting place for militia members and pro-government forces. “At exactly 9:35am, seven improvised devices were set off in two explosions to target a school used for weekly planning meetings between shabbiha militias and security officers," Abu Moaz told Reuters.
Abu Moaz is a leader of Ansar al-Islam, a rebel group that has joined the Syrian opposition.
