Alleged “Muslim Brotherhood in Syria” Website Claims Resonsibility for Attacks

An alleged “Muslim Brotherhood in Syria” Website claimed responsibility on Saturday for the suicide bombings that targeted Damascus a day earlier.


An alleged “Muslim Brotherhood in Syria” website claimed responsibility on Saturday for the suicide bombings that targeted Damascus a day earlier, saying they were the first step in “liberating” the capital and vowing there were more attacks to come.


"One of our victorious Sunni brigades was able to target the state security building in Kfar Suseh in the heart of the... capital Damascus in a successful operation carried out by four of our kamikazes drawn from the best of our glorious men, leaving many dead and wounded from the ranks of the Assad gangs," the party said on its official website.


"We as defenders of the Syrian people and the sanctity of this nation send a message to Assad's gangs: This is the beginning of the liberation of Damascus and the tip of the iceberg," the statement added.


The statement also warned the Syrian people of approaching from the governmental centers.
"Hence we warn our fellow citizens and advise them not to approach government centers or security branches... because our martyrdom brigades are in a state of maximum readiness to carry out quality operations in Aleppo, Damascus, and the blessed land of Syria in the next 10 days."


The statement was signed by the "Muslim Brotherhood's media committee inside Syria."


THE PARTY DENIES
Following the claim of responsibility, al-Arabiya channel reported that the branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria has denied any involvement in the attacks.


“The group rejected an earlier claim reported by AFP in which it cited the Brotherhood as claiming responsibility for the attacks based on a statement on its website, which the group said is fake”, the party said.


Al-Arabiya quoted a source close to the party as saying that the “is the work of the Syrian intelligence trying to drag the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood into the crisis”.

 

However, the official website of the MB in Syria said the news are fabricated.
