Today in the afternoon in one of the poorest areas in the western part of Damascus bomb exploded, hidden in a parked car near the houses. The explosion destroyed a number of buildings, and then the fire started. According to some data of 11 people were killed on the spot, 50 - were wounded.
The Al Mazza - typical of the Arab world a residential area with narrow streets and chaotic residential development, without administrative buildings and military installations. In Damascus, he is known as one of the places largely populated by Alawite and Kurdish populations.
We interviewed witnesses of the events
1st witness: About half of the fourth day, I came here on your own machine, and about 150 meters I heard a loud explosion. I left the car and came here. Here I see severely damaged, crumpled pipes, wounded women, children, lots of blood, burned corpses, people are in a row. And the explosion in a time when children return from school!
When asked about the number of people injured
- I did not count, but I think dozens of dead and wounded
Terrorists, I want to say that there is a God, and God's request that the explosion was the last. This is their latest trick, the more they can not, this explosion proves their moral failure
2nd witness: These terrorists - people without morals, without faith, without a conscience. These are not people - they are animals!
We live here, and we still live here!
We will be with Bashar al-Assad to the end, to the end will be with him!
---- Chanting slogans in support of the current government -----
Likely to assume that the attack is intended to intimidate ordinary people from the Alawite. But today, under the terrorist attacks were not only Alawites, but living in the same area the Sunnis - the Kurds.
Obviously, in Syria it is not a Sunni and Alawite opposition, as they want to present to the newly opened summit in Qatar, more like an organizational meeting of terrorists and foreign interventionists.
It is an act of revenge over the Syrians blind, ready to defend the sovereignty of their country. And including the Kurds, to open a "second front" in the north-eastern border of Syria, and this creates a real threat to international gang of adventurers, bandits and militant Islamists.
