53 Civili Uccisi e 235 altri feriti in un attentato terroristico suicida a Damasco

DAMASCO, 21 febbraio 2013- Almeno 53 le vittime e 235 i feriti del vile attentato suicida quando un terrorista kamikaze si è fatto esplodere in un trafficato incrocio presso il quartiere al-Mazraa, sulla strada di al-Thawra, in uno dei quartieri centrali della capitale.

L’esplosione ha scosso un affollato incrocio (adiacente alla stazione di autobus vicino alla moschea di al-Eman, all’ospedale Al-Hayat e alla scuola di Abdullah Ibin Zubair).

La violenza dell’esplosione è stata sentita a quasi due chilometri di distanza intorno alla zona dell’attentato, che aveva lo scopo di uccidere più gente possibile.

Le autorità hanno però bloccato e arrestato un altro aspirante attentatore suicida il quale stava guidando un’auto imbottita con più di 400 kg d’esplosivo nella stessa zona, con l’intenzione di farsi esplodere non appena la zona si fosse maggiormente affollata nuovamente.

I reparti anti-terrorismo dell’autorità siriane sono riusciti ad individuare e neutralizzare quest’altro kamikaze che aveva già in mano il detonatore per innescarle e farle brillare una volta penetrato tra i civili.

I danni e le vittime sarebbero stati enormi, ma la vigilanza delle autorità competenti di Intelligence ed il loro rapido intervento ha evitato il peggio”.
