An explosion was reported at a police station in Damascus’ Midan neighborhood on December 16. One child was killed in the explosion and several policeman were wounded, according to the <a href="http://www.syriahr.com/en/?p=57127" target="_blank">Syrian Observatory for Human Rights</a>.

State media reported that the explosion was caused by a nine-year-old girl who walked into the building and ignited a bomb; however, the <span class="caps">SOHR</span> claimed that it was unclear whether or the explosion was caused by the girl or a recently placed <span class="caps">IED</span>. In the state-owned footage, the purported body of the nine-year-old bomber is blurred out.
