Thousands of Syrians marched to the Umayyad mosque in old Damascus to participate in the funeral procession of the people who were killed in the twin attacks that targeted security bases in Damascus on Friday. The bodies of the martyrs arrived each in a minibus. They were wrapped in the Syrian flag and were taken to the inside of the mosque. Several countries in addition to the UN have condemned the attacks. The minister of religious endowments Mohammad Abdulsattar al-Sayyed read a statement issued by Muslim and Christian figures condemning the terrorist attacks. He also spoke about a conspiracy targeting Syria.
