Insecurity in Damascus

On May 10, Syrian state TV said 55 people were killed and about 400 injured in two bomb attacks carried out by the “terrorists” on a main freeway in the southern neighborhood of Qazzaz in Damascus.
The smoke of explosions could be seen rising from the site of one of the blasts, residents said.
The Syrian Interior Ministry said several civilians and army members have been among the victims.
The bombings in Damascus were conducted a day after a similar attack targeted a Syrian military truck escorting a convoy of UN observers near the southwestern city of Dara’a on May 9. Six Syrian soldiers were wounded in the attack.
Head of the UN mission Major Gen Robert Mood was also in the convoy, but neither he nor any of the other monitors sustained injuries.
