SULAIMANI (ESTA) — At least 13 people were killed in an explosion targeting a Syrian army bus in central Damascus, state news agency SANA reported on Wednesday.

Two explosion devices went off as the bus was on the Hafez Al-Assad bridge, Syrian state TV said, according to Reuters.

A third device was defused by an army engineering unit, it added.

The TV channel’s account on Telegram showed the charred cabin of the bus.

SANA said three other people were wounded in the blast.

The United Nations says at least 350,000 people were killed in the civil war that started a decade ago, following protests against President Bashar al-Assad.
