DAMASCUS: Syrian state-TV said Saturday that two "terrorists" were killed when their bomb-attached car exploded at the Palestinian camp of Yarmouk area south of the capital Damascus and two separate bombings here killed at least 27 people and wounded 140 others.
The TV said the car blast damaged nearby buildings, without giving further details.
The Doha-based pan-Arab al-Jazeera TV cited sources as saying that the blast targeted a brigadier in the Syrian army, who was killed along with three Palestinians, reported Xinhua.
Earlier Saturday, sources told Xinhua that a suicide bomber detonated himself at the 30th street in Yarmouk.
The blast happened almost at the same time as another two bombings -- one at al-Jamarek roundabout, targeting the Criminal Security Department, and the other at the al-Tahrir square connecting the Baghdad street with al-Qassaa neighbourhood, targeting the Air Intelligence Directorate, -- which killed at least 27 people and wounded 140 others.
