Multiple explosions hit a southern district of Damascus Sunday where Syria’s holiest Shiite shrine is located, pro-government television channels, witnesses and an activist group said, as Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV said that at least 22 were killed in the attacks.


Four blasts hit al-Tin street in Sayeda Zeinab, pro-Damascus al-Ikhbariya said in a newsflash. It said two of the blasts were car bombs and the other two had been detonated by suicide attackers.


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said there were four explosions in a combined vehicle bomb and suicide attack.


State TV said the blasts hit near the al-Sadr hospital in Sayeda Zeinab.
