A suicide bomber killed more than thirty people in Syrian capital Damascus on Wednesday after detonating explosives inside the main judicial building located near the crowded Hamidiyeh market. Several others are wounded.
In another attack at a restaurant in Rabweh district of the capital left many dead too.
The judicial building attack was highly deadly one targeting government-controlled areas compared to other attacks in recent months.
The Syrian civil war recently marked sixth anniversary in which over 400,000 people have been killed and millions of others have been displaced.
A popular uprising against President Bashar Assad’s rule started in 2011 and quickly descended into a deadly civil war.
Damascus police chief Mohammad Kheir Ismail said the attack occurred at around 1:20 p.m. and alleged a man in military uniform equipped with a shotgun and grenades had attacked the building.
It is further learned the Justice Palace guards stopped him but he ran hurriedly inside the building.
Syria’s attorney general Ahmad al-Sayed said, “This is a dirty action as people who enter the palace are innocent.”
In the second attack it is learned a suicide attacker blew himself in a restaurant.
