A car blast killed one person in an upscale neighborhood of the Syrian capital, Damascus, on May 25, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported, with-out identifying the victim.

Quoting a police official, the state-run news agency said that “one person was killed when an explosive device exploded in their car in the Mazzeh neighborhood”. It did not provide any additional details on the incident.

Videos posted to social networks showed a fire near the finance complex and at least two vehicles which were destroyed by the blast.

Security incidents, including blasts targeting military and civilian vehicles, are a regular occurance in Damascus. Nevertheless, the latest blast comes amid high tensions between Israel and Syria over the Israeli war on the Palestinian Hamas Movement in the Gaza Strip and the clashes with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Israel has significantly escalated its attacks on Syria since the outbreak of the war in Gaza, targeting Syrian military sites as well as personnel of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Hezbollah, Hamas and other affiliated forces of the so-called Axis of Resistance.

Last week, a suspected Israeli strike hit a vehicle on an international highway near the town of al-Dimass to the west of Damascus in an apparent assassination attempt. No casualties were reported, however.

War-torn Syria has for long refrained from responding to Israel’s repeated attacks in what appears to be an attempt to avoid a dangerous confrontation.
