Sweida, SANA -The spiritual leadership of the sect of al-Muwahhidin Muslims in the country denounced the twin terrorist car bombings that targeted Sweida city.

Police Chief in Sweida Maj. Gen. Mohammad Samra said the situation in Sweida city on Saturday is calm and stable, after yesterday’s twin car bomb attacks.

In a statement to SANA, Samra denied reports circulated by some media outlets about targeting security personnel in Sweida city, stressing that those reports are “tendentious and baseless.”
He dismissed these reports as being part of the falsification campaign targeting the province for a while to disrupt security and stability there and shake the resilience of its locals.
