Syria - Suicide Car Bomb blew up in a Residential Neighborhood in the city of Deir Ezzor

A deadly suicide blast hit Syria's eastern city of Deir Ezzor on Saturday, killing nine people and wounded over 100 others causing also big damages to the surrounding buildings.

“A car bomb exploded in the Ghazi Ayyash neighborhood of Deir Ezzor,” said the report, adding the blast was carried out by a “terrorist suicide bomber using 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) of explosives” and caused widespread “material damage.”

A team of the U.N. observers inspected the site of the attack.

The images broadcast by the official TV showed destroyed buildings, carcasses of vehicles, a large crater and blood stains on a road.

Amateur videos posted online showed thick black smoke hovering over the site of the military intelligence building and air force intelligence directorate .

The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR) has also reported a suicide car bomb in the city, saying the explosion was near military intelligence offices and was followed by heavy gunfire.

The Syrian opposition has accused the regime of President Bashar al-Assad of having instigated the suicide car bombing attack, as well as "all criminal attacks" that rocked the country recently. The Syrian National Council (SNC), the main opposition coalition, said "the Syrian regime is fully responsible for the criminal attacks in several Syrian cities including one today in Deir Ezzor," according a statement.

Earlier, the headquarters of Syria’s ruling Ba'ath Party was attacked in the northern province of Aleppo when unidentified gunmen hurled a grenade at the building, SANA news reported.

There was no claim of responsibility for the bombing as most of the previous attacks were claimed by unknown groups, some sources claim that Al Qaeda was resposible for these attacks. So far al-Qaida did not claim any resposibility through its website.

More as it becomes available.
