An IED has been detonated at the Justice Palace in al-Hamidiyeh, Damascus, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency. It’s reported at least 25 people have been killed in the blast. 

A suicide bomber detonated the explosives inside the main building on Wednesday, according to AP. The Justice Palace houses a number of Syrian courts.

The attacker is said to have detonated his explosive device after police attempted to prevent him from entering the building, Ahmed al-Sayyid, a senior state legal official told al-Ikhbariya TV, according to Reuters.

A Damascus Police source told SANA the initial death toll is said to be 25, with a number of people injured. No group has yet taken responsibility for the blast.


Government authorities ordered an evacuation of the area over fears of further attacks, Almasdar News reports. The Justice Palace is located close to the famous Hamidiyeh market in Damascus.

The attack comes on the sixth anniversary of the protests which paved the way for the Syrian conflict and is the second bombing in the Syrian capital in five days.

Twin bomb attacks killed at least 40 in Damascus on Saturday. An Al Qaeda-linked terrorist alliance, Levant Liberation Committee, also known as Hayat Tahrir al Sham, claimed responsibility for the blasts.

The attack comes as talks on Syria’s future take place in Astana, Kazakhstan. Rebel representatives did not attend the two-day summit.
