Multiple explosions hit a southern district of Damascus Sunday where Syria’s holiest Shiite shrine is located, as various Syrian sources claimed at least 120 were killed.
Three blasts hit al-Tin street, a schools’ street in al-Sayyida Zeinab town in southern Damascus, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported. It said that terrorists detonated a car bomb loaded with a large quantity of explosives, while the bombing was followed by two other suicide bombings with explosive belts after the civilians gathered in the place.
ISIS later claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to Al-Mayadeen.
Suicide attacks last month claimed by ISIS in Al-Sayyida Zeinab killed at least 45 people.
Syrian prime minister Wael al-Halaqi condemned the attacks saying that terrorist organizations are committing their attacks to make up for the recurring losses and defeats they suffer at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army.
