As the unrest continues in Syria, two car bombs exploded on Mondaywhich killed many people. It is believed that the attacks were set off close to the capital of Damascus. The first car bomb was reported to have exploded in the province of Hama, with activists claiming at least 50 people were left dead as a result.
In a report by The Telegraph, one activist in the area of Hama claims the attacks could be matched to the rebel strategy, which apparently focuses on making the location hard for the regime to maintain.
With regards to the second attack the bomb, which was apparently a booby-trapped car, went off in Mezza 86. This is a district close to Syria’s capital, being west of Damascus. According to officials, this left a further 11 people dead.
According to a report by the New York Times, the Syrian Army has said they were behind this particular attack, and it is understood that the Mezza area had military officers present there as well as army bodies who worked for the government.
The fighting that has taken place in Syria owes much of itself to the struggle between opposing groups with regards to President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
The uprising first began in March last year, with many people being victims of violence by either being injured or killed.
