Today (Feb 21, 2013), the favorite group of the Western-backed Syrian opposition, al-Qaeda's Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), has conducted multiple suicide bombings in residential areas, the most violent of which was in the residential area of al-Thawra Street near al-Mazraa neighborhood. There was also a second failed attempt to detonate a 1,500 Kg bomb by a suicide bomber at the same site of al-Thawra Street explosion, but he got stopped by the Security Services before he was able to kill the people who tried to rescue the injured there. Another bomb detonated in another area of Damascus that led to subsequent fighting.
The toll of the first bombing in al-Thawra Street was 53 civilians killed and 235 injured. CNN reported that the bomb detonated at a checkpoint manned by government soldiers in front of the Baath Socialist Party's main office based on "the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights," a group known to accuse the Syrian Army of committing massacres that were really committed by the "Free Syrian Army" (FSA). The neighborhood is also home to Iraqi refugees as well as Druze and Christian groups.
Those terrorist acts coincided with the targeting of a number of residential buildings with mortar shells, causing material damage, while the FSA targeted on Wednesday the Syrian sports institutions as they attacked Tishreen Sports City with two mortar shells, causing the death of football player Youssef Suleiman and the injury of several other athletes.
