REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, DAMASCUS -- A second blast rocked the resort area of Rabweh in Syrian capital Damascus, just an hour after a suicide bombing targeted the Justice Palace in central Damascus Wednesday and killed over 30 people, state TV said.

The preliminary information indicates that the bombing in Rabweh, a restaurant-rich resort area in western Damascus, was carried out by either a suicide bomber or an explosive device, with the target still unknown.

The bombing came an hour after a suicide bomber detonated himself inside the Justice Palace, or Courthouse, in central Damascus, killing 30 people and wounded 45 others. The blast is the latest in a series of bombings that have sparked recently, following a long time of lull.

On Saturday, the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front carried a suicide bombing in Damascus, killing 74 people, including Iraqi Shiite visitors, who were in Damascus on a pilgrim visit.
