Eleven civilians, including children, were killed in Idlib, in the bombing of the Syrian army, following the bombing of a military bus in the Syrian capital, Damascus, killing 14 people.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the shells fell on a crowded area in the town of Ariha, adding that at least two children were among the victims.

The bombing of Idlib came after the detonation of two explosive devices targeting a military bus at the President Bridge in the center of the Syrian capital, Damascus, killing 14 people.

And the state news agency “SANA” reported that “engineering units dismantled a third bomb planted in the place where the terrorist explosion occurred.”

The explosion, which occurred on Wednesday morning, also resulted in the deaths of 3 others.

And state media broadcast videos showing the complete burning of the targeted bus.

The BBC Arabic correspondent in Damascus, Assaf Aboud, says that the authorities imposed a security cordon around the place, while they continued to search for any other devices.

This year, military vehicle attacks have been targeted in eastern Syria, for which the Islamic State is believed to be responsible.

But attacks have rarely occurred in the capital since government forces retook rebel-held areas around Damascus.

No party claimed responsibility for the bombing.

Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad managed to control most of the Syrian territory, thanks to Russian and Iranian support.
