At least six people have been killed in two car bomb attacks in a northern suburb of the Syrian capital Damascus.
According to AFP, several people were also injured when the explosives-laden cars exploded near a police station in Dayr Atiyah near Damascus on Sunday.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Syrian officials say the main suspects are al-Nusra terrorists linked to al-Qaeda.
Sunday’s attack comes as the Syrian Army maintains its edge over the foreign-sponsored insurgents fighting against the government.
The Syrian troops have recently conducted successful clean-up operations across the country, inflicting heavy losses on Takfiri extremists.
The Syrian Army’s push against the militants rattled their foreign sponsors.
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said on June 26 that Saudi Arabia is trembling with fear because of the Syrian Army’s recent successes against the insurgents.
In a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Jeddah, Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal insisted on June 25 that the insurgents in Syria must be armed with anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons.
Zoubi said that the Saudi weapons and money is the main reason behind bloodshed in Syria, adding that Faisal “is lost in the Syrian blood.”
