The foiled attack comes a day after two suicide bombs ripped through Damascus in the deadliest bombing in the 14-month-long Syria conflict. The Syrian government blamed "foreign-backed terrorists," and rebels said the government staged the attacks.
The toll from yesterday's attack hovers around 400 injured, according to the BBC. At least 55 were killed, according to a news update from Reuters. The explosives used in the twin bombs were estimated to weigh 1,000 kilograms each.
