BEIRUT — Two explosions rocked the Syrian capital of Damascus Saturday, state media reported.
One explosion occurred near the Syrian Air Force intelligence headquarters, Syrian television said. The other took place near Customs Square.
“We heard two loud explosions and then we heard ambulances rushing to the area of Al Kassaa and the Customs Square,” a resident of Damascus told dpa by phone.
There was no immediate word on casualties as the Syrian security forces cordoned off the area.
The London-based opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombings targeted “Syrian security headquarters,” without giving details.
The attacks came two days after the first anniversary of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Dozens of people were killed in three bombings that hit Damascus in December and January.
