Damascus Syria’s state-run news agency says a fresh wave of bombings has hit Damascus and its outskirts.
SANA says “terrorists detonated” three bombs in Al-Mazzeh district of Damascus late Wednesday night, targeting a mosque, a sports club and a shop.
The agency says one person was killed in the explosion near the district’s Al-Houda mosque, and two were wounded. It says six people, including a child, were injured in the two other explosions.
Damascus refers to rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assadas terrorists and accuses them of being part of a foreign plot to destroy Syria.
Also according to SANA, the death toll from a bombing Wednesday evening in a Damascus suburb that houses revered Shia Muslim shrine of lady Zainab rose to 13 after another victim died of wounds.
