DAMASCUS, April 6 (Xinhua) -- One person was killed and six others wounded on Friday when an explosive device ripped through a car in the capital Damascus, state news agency SANA reported.
The bomb went off behind the Khansa Mosque in the Barzeh neighborhood north of Damascus, said the report.
The incident is a reminder of the early years of Syrian crisis when the bombings started to hit the country right after mass protests, which started seven years ago.
This incident comes as the capital Damascus is largely safe after the majority of the rebel groups had evacuated the Eastern Ghouta countryside of Damascus, except for the district of Douma.
Rebels in Douma are currently negotiating with the Syrian army over their evacuation from that area.
Barzeh neighborhood in northern Damascus had been under the rebels' control before the government forces recaptured it in 2017 after the evacuation of rebels to northern Syria.
