Pro-Damascus channel al-Ikhbariya showed footage of damaged shop fronts, debris littering the streets, wounded people and charred or burning cars.

There was no immediate claim for the car bomb blast which is coming a day after the Syrian government made advances against ISIS.

It could be recalled that in December last year, a bomb attack killed 32 people following a ceasefire deal which paved way for President Bashar al-Assad’s government to take over the rebel-controlled area of the city.
