(CNN) — A day after attackers bombed a pro-government TV station, massive explosions shook the heart of Damascus near the Justice Ministry, the state-run media said.
Two blasts occurred in a parking garage Thursday outside the Palace of Justice, which houses the ministry, Syrian state-TV said. The Local Coordination Committees of Syria confirmed the blast and said it occurred in the Marja neighborhood of central Damascus.
TV video showed heavy smoke rising above buildings in Damascus. Firefighters battled a blaze at the site of the explosion.
On Wednesday, bombers killed at least seven people in the headquarters of al-Ikhbaria, near Damascus, killing three journalists and four security guards, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency reported. The attackers also ransacked and destroyed studios, the news outlet said.
