A military bus exploded in Damascus Wednesday morning, killing four people, including the driver.
A bus transports Syrian military personnel was detonated at the entrance of Masaken al-Haras (Guards’ residences) near Mashru’a Dummar in Damascus, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said.
SANA News Agency revealed that the blast was a result of a short circuit which led to the explosion of the fuel tank of the bus. In addition, the injured people were immediately admitted to the hospital, according to SANA.
In May, a blast at a jihadist-run arms depot in Syria’s northwestern Idlib region killed two fighters and a civilian. The blast, which took place at Al-Furousiya camp near the town of Fuaa, blew the warehouse to smithereens and set fire to a nearby field.
SOHR said: “The blast destroyed a warehouse run by jihadists in which missiles and explosive materials were manufactured.”
Moreover, six of the camp residents, including women and children, were injured in the blast.
