Damascus, SANA-Journalist Nabil Khaddour was injured on Tuesday in a detonation of an explosive device planted in his car in Damascus.

A police source told SANA that an explosive device, planted by terrorists inside a Toyota car, exploded at the end tunnel of the Omayyad square in Damascus while Journalist Khaddour was driving it.

Minister of Information Imad Sarah arrived in the hospital to assure the health condition of Khaddour who works at the Arab Advertising Organization, hoping Journalist Khaddour would soon recover.
