Multiple explosions hit a southern district of Damascus on Sunday where Syria’s holiest Shi’ite shrine is located, pro-government television channels, witnesses and a monitoring group said, with reports of an unknown number of casualties.
Four blasts hit al-Tin street in Sayeda Zeinab, pro-Damascus al-Ikhbariya said in a newsflash. It said two of the blasts were car bombs and the other two had been detonated by suicide attackers.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said there were four explosions in a combined vehicle bomb and suicide attack.
State TV said the blasts hit near the al-Sadr hospital in Sayeda Zeinab.
Suicide attacks last month claimed by Islamic State in the district killed 60 people.
Sunday’s explosions came just hours after a twin bomb attack in the city of Homs which killed at least 46 people, according to the Observatory.
