The explosions occurred in al-Midan neighborhood in the city on Monday after a number of terrorists detonated their explosive vests in front of a police station in the area.

Russia's RIA news agency, citing its correspondent who was reporting from the scene, noted that the martyrs included five policemen and 10 civilians.

RIA also quoted a source in the Syrian security services as saying that the attacks had been carried out by four bombers.

Meanwhile, al-Mayadeen TV channel reported that four militants carried out the attack.

Syrian Interior Minister Mohammad al-Shaar said in comments broadcast by the state television that armed militants carrying out the attack were targeting the police station and clashed with police officers there.

One attacker blew his explosives at the main entrance of the station and another one detonated his explosives on the first floor, the minister added.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Damascus attacks, however, previous terrorist attacks in the Syrian capital were claimed by terrorists from Daesh and al-Nusra Front Takfiri groups.
