A bomb exploded in central Damascus on Wednesday close to several military buildings and a hotel housing United Nations observers, wounding three people and sending a pillar of black smoke into the sky above the Syrian capital.
Syrian deputy foreign minister Faisal Mekdad said
none of the UN monitors was hurt in the explosion.
“This is another criminal operation which proves the barbaric nature of those who carry out these attacks,” Mekdad said.
