A car bomb attack has ripped through six vehicles belonging to Press TV and al-Alam television networks in the Syrian capital Damascus, security sources report.

Syrian security guards said on Friday that the bomb explosion occurred near Press TV’s office in Damascus after a man was caught on camera sticking something to a car.

According to reports, he escaped the scene of the attack minutes before the blast.

However, the bomb attack did not cause any casualties.

On September 26, militants in Damascus attacked Press TV staff, killing the Iranian English-language news network’s correspondent Maya Naser, and injuring its Damascus Bureau Chief Hosein Mortada.

Syria has been the scene of unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have lost their lives in the turmoil.

The Syrian government says foreign-backed “terrorists” are responsible for the killings, and that certain Western states, especially the United States, and their regional allies are fueling the turmoil.$
