Car bombs kill at least 34 in eastern Damascus

29 November 2012

Pro-regime suburb normally considered a safe area of Syrian capital

At least 34 people were killed in car bombings on 28 November in an area of eastern Damascus that largely supports the Bashar al-Assad government.

At least two car bombs exploded in a busy area of Jaramana – considered one of the safest areas of Damascus and its suburbs – leaving dozens more people critically wounded. Jaramana has been frequently targeted by rebels in recent weeks. Earlier in the month, a car bomb exploded killing 10 people with 41 people reported injured.
