Two explosive devices went off in a suburb of Syria’s capital Damascus on Wednesday, killing one person and injuring five others, local media said.

The bombs rocked the entrance of al-Qariat Street, the Sham FM radio said.

Other local media placed the death toll at five. But the account could not be verified with the absence of official comments.

A series of blasts rocked Jaramana over the past few months, resulting in scores of deaths and injuries in the area, which is dominated by Christians and Druze.

Blasts in Syria have become daily routines, especially in the capital where the armed militias are trying to wobble the Syrian administration grip on power; while the Syrian government says it is fighting jihadists and Takfiri groups linked to the al-Qaeda terror network.
