A bomb attack has hit eastern Syria as clashes between government forces and foreign-backed terrorists continue across the country, Press TV reports.
The incident occurred on Thursday when a car bomb was detonated in the city of Deir al-Zour.
The number of casualties was not immediately clear.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Army managed to kill 22 militants in the capital, Damascus.
Other reports say a number of Saudi Arabian and Libyan insurgents were killed in the western city of Rastan, in Homs Governorate.
The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed.
Damascus says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
The Syrian government says the West and its regional allies, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the armed groups. – See more at: http://www.presstv.com/detail/2013/02/28/291265/car-bomb-rocks-syrias-deir-alzour/#sthash.u5OHtjOe.dpuf
