    A mined car explosion in central Damascus district of Kafr Sousa, Syria wounded one man, media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A mined car explosion in central Damascus district of Kafr Sousa, Syria wounded one man, media reported Tuesday citing law enforcement source.

    "One man was wounded as a result of a mined car explosion in Kafr Sousa district of Damascus. Limited material damage had been caused," Ekhbariya TV channel reported.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. On February 27, a US-Russia brokered ceasefire entered into force in Syria, with terrorist groups such as the Islamic State and Nusra Front, both outlawed in Russia, being excluded from the truce.
