Three explosions hit southern suburbs of Damascus

AMMAN, Jan 31 (KUNA) — Forty five people have been killed and 110 others were wounded due to numerous explosions on Wednesday in Sayyidah Zaynab city, in the southern suburbs of Damascus, Syria.
Syrian Ministry of Interior announced, in a statement picked up in the Jordanian capital, that some gunmen have targeted a civilian passenger’s bus with a bomb-laden car at Koa Sodhda area in Sayyidah Zaynab city, followed by two suicide bombers who blew themselves up at the scene where people gathered to help the injured.
Syrian Prime Minister Wael Nader Al-Halqi said that these attacks intended to “increase the spirit of the oppositions groups in Syria because of the victories that the Syrian Army is achieving,” reported by Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
Al-Halqi stressed on the importance of showing a true will by the international community and act accordingly “in fighting terror which poses a real threat to the whole world and not only Syria.” The so called Islamic State (IS), on social media networks, announced “full responsibility for the attacks.” (end) tk.mys
