The attack was carried out by terrorists at the entrance of the Christian-Druze neighborhood of Jaramana on Saturday, SANA news agency reported.

The report added that a number of people were killed and wounded in the blast.

The attack also caused damage to properties in the area.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies, especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and a total of 7.8 million others displaced due to the violence.
