The Free Syrian Army reportedly targeted senior security officers in a car bomb attack on a Damascus district late Monday, activist groups said.

The Syrian Revolution General Commission said a group of officers in the southwestern neighborhood of Kfar Sousa was targeted.

The area is home to a number of government and military intelligence buildings.

A video posted to the website YouTube by activists late Monday night purportedly showed members of the Liwa al-Sham rebel group claiming responsibility for the blast, according to AFP news agency.

Two members of the group said its fighters “on the ground targeted a group of senior officers responsible for crimes of the Assad regime.”

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a statement with the names of those targeted would be released later.

The Britain-based group said “A large explosion apparently caused by an explosive device placed inside a car rocked the district of Kfar Sousa,” in a statement reported by AFP.
