Syria’s rebels launched a bold attack in Damascus Wednesday, unleashing a bomb during a high-level security meeting that killed three top officials in the regime, including President Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law.
State-run TV said the blast came during a Cabinet meeting of senior officials in Damascus, which has seen four straight days of bloodshed.
The killings could signal a change in the civil war, a turning point that has seen the violence escalate and grow more chaotic.
