4TH ATTACK ON SAYEDA ZAYNAB SHRINE – A BLOW TO ASSAD
I.S.I.S has claimed responsibility, on Saturday 06/11/2016, for a car blast and suicide bombings in Syria’s south Damascus quarter, that contains Syria’s holiest Shiite Sayeda Zaynab (Zaineb) Muslim shrine, that killed at least 20 people, the militants-linked Amaq News Agency reported .
State media, which flashed the news, did not give further details about the bombings in the Sayeda Zeinab area, where at least three bomb attacks claimed by ISIS militants have killed and injured scores of people this year.
A Shiite religious cleric on the state-run Ikhbariyah TV channel said the car bomb blast was not far from the shrine area in the main al-Taen street.
The heavily garrisoned area is a well-known stronghold of Lebanon’s powerful Shiite Hezbollah group, a major backer of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The overall responsibility of guarding the site is in the hands of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard
Thousands of Iraqi and Afghan Shiite militia recruits who volunteer to fight against the Sunni rebel groups trying to bring down Assad’s government normally come to the area before being sent to frontlines across Syria.
They say they come to Syria to defend the Sayeda Zeinab shrine from radical Sunni extremists.
