Explosive device goes off near Russian Embassy in Syria’s Capital

An explosive device went off on Thursday in the East of Syria’s Capital Damascus, causing only material damage, a Syrian Security Source said.
The device, fixed under a vehicle, exploded in the Adawi neighbourhood close to the Russian embassy.
According to the report, the blast caused damage but no human losses. It’s still unclear whether the Russian embassy was targeted in the explosion as Adawi is a big neighbourhood in Damascus.
The explosion comes days after an explosive device was detonated in Damascus, causing no casualties, state media said.
The recent explosions in Syria came as the government troops make progress in many areas across the country.
