TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Syrian lawmaker disclosed that Tel Aviv and Amman have plotted the recent terrorist attacks in Syria, including assassination of senior Druze cleric Sheikh Wahid al-Balous in Sweida province.

“The terrorists had taken orders from the spy agencies of Jordan and Israel to assassinate Sheikh Balous,” Yousef al-Ass’ad told FNA on Wednesday.

He underlined that Israel plays a role in all the terrorist attacks in Syria and even the Arab countries’ financial support for the terrorists in Syria take place at Israel’s orders.

On Friday, at least 26 people were killed and 50 others injured in twin car bomb attacks in Syria’s Sweida city.

Security sources said Friday that a first car bomb targeted a convoy of vehicles on the road known as Zahr al-Jabal on the outskirts of Sweida.

The second bomb was detonated near Sweida’s state-run hospital, killing those carrying the victims of the first blast, according to the report.

Other reports said Sheikh Wahid al-Balous, a senior Druze cleric, was killed in the first car bomb. Balous had repeatedly lashed out at militants for their cold-blooded killing of the civilians in Syria.

The blast in front of the hospital gate reportedly caused massive damage to the health facility and the neighboring buildings, while it also inflicted damage on cars travelling in the area.
