According to Syrian sources, an unknown attacker detonated explosives at a traffic light in the densely populated neighborhood of al-Midan on Friday.
Most of the victims are reported to be civilians, but some security personnel were also among the casualties. Authorities say that the toll could increase since some of the injured are in critical condition.
It’s the second such incident in Damascus in the past two weeks. On December 23, two bombings killed at least 44 people outside Syrian intelligence buildings
