A loud band has been heard in Syria’s capital Damascus, according to a Reuters witness.
The loud bang heard in Syria’s capital was a result of operation to clear remnants of explosives in the Damascus countryside, according to state news agency SANA.
The overall death toll for Syria’s civil war has reached 388,652 since it began a decade ago this month, a war monitor said.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the figures includes almost 117,388 civilians, among them more than 22,000 children.
Attacks by the Syrian regime and allied militia forces accounted for the majority of civilian deaths, said the Britain-based monitor which relies on sources inside Syria for its reports.
