The aftermath of today’s bomb on ath-Thawra street, one of the main roads in central Damascus. This is a busy highway, next to the upmarket Mazra’ah district where the Russian Embassy and Baath Party HQ are located. This area is also normally used as bus stop for those travelling between Eastern Damascus and the City Centre. Dozens of casualties are reported. The FSA has denied any involvement.
Meanwhile at least 2 bombs are reported in Barzeh, a residential area generally supportive of the revolution as well as the usual daily airstrikes, rocket, artillery, tank and mortar fire.
