Three explosions rocked Damascus on Wednesday, being detonated outside the Interior Ministry building.
Syrian state-run Sana news reported that one person was killed and several others injured in a different car bomb attack near the Justice Ministry.
The attacks are similar to those perpetrated by opposition forces in July which killed four top Syrian officials, including President Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law, the acting defense minister.
Over a hundred countries on Wednesday officially recognized a new Syrian opposition federation which they will likely support through humanitarian assistance, and possibly training and arms. A new president who is expected to eventually replace Assad after he is overthrown, Mouaz al-Khatib, called for peace with the minority group of Alawites in Syria and condemned extremism, even as jihad-inspired groups provide serious manpower to the fight against Assad.
