Three car bombs exploded in Damascus on Sunday (July 2), state media reported, and seven people were killed in one of the blasts, a police officer said.
It was the biggest such attack in the Syrian capital since a series of suicide attacks in March.
One of the suicide bombers blew himself up in Tahrir square in central Damascus after being encircled by the authorities. The police officer at the scene said seven people were killed and 13 wounded in that attack. The other two car bombs were destroyed by the authorities, state media said.
Footage broadcast from another of the blast sites showed what appeared to be the remains of a person and badly damaged vehicles outside a mosque in the Baytara traffic circle near the Old City.
