Suicide Bombing in Syria

Suicide Bombing in Syria

A senior Syrian army officer was wounded in a suicide bombing in a central Damascus district on Monday, a monitoring group said.
“A major general who heads the munitions and supply division of the Syrian army was injured and one of his companions killed and two hurt in the rebel attack,” said Rami Abdul Rahman, the head of the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which employs a network of people on the ground.
But a Syrian army source who spoke to Reuters denied a senior figure had been wounded. He said five people had staged the attack, which occurred in the bustling central district of Rukn al Din. All were killed or arrested, he said.
Other than the attackers, the bombing killed one person and injured five injured in the terror attack, some of whom were in critical condition, he added.
Earlier, a Syrian army source on state television said the suicide bomber blew himself up in Rukn al Din. The neighborhood houses several security compounds, according to residents. It is also home to many Syrian Kurds.
The army source told state television the security forces had killed all the members of “a terrorist group” in the district during a chase after the bomber blew himself up.
