A bus transporting Syrian soldiers in the capital, Damascus, was targeted on November 7 with an improvised-explosive device (IED), which had been planted by unknown operatives.
According to local sources, the attack took place in the al-Woroud street in the district of Qudssaya in the northwestern part of Damascus.
“An explosive device explodes inside a bus in al-Woroud street, west of Damascus, wounding the driver and a soldier, they were taken to hospital for treatment,” a source in Damascus Police Department said commenting on the attack.
There was no immediate claim for the attack. However, cells of ISIS and other terrorist groups are known to be active in the Syrian capital.
Many civilians were killed or injured in similar attacks over the last year. Most of the attacks targeted figures known for supporting the Damascus government or local officials, who facilitated reconciliation deals around Damascus.
