At least 40 are dead after double bomb blasts in Qazaz in the south of Damascus.
The attacks hit military intelligence headquarters and have been claimed by the Nusra Front, a small Islamist group. The Guardian is reporting that the group appears to be real, rather than a figment of state media’s usual wild imagination.
However, the SNC, itself no stranger to conspiracy theories, is already blaming the government despite a lack of evidence.
The SNC says the army planted the bombs to scare the UN monitors into going home – even though it previously accused the regime of using the monitors to buy time. Can’t have it both ways.
