a submarine. u. s denounces a provocation that says it's open to talks. and a u. s. committee investigating the storming of the capitol backs contempt charges for one of former president donald trump's topics. ah, we begin with syria where state media say 2 roadside bombs that exploded near an army bust in the worst attack in the capital. in years. at least 14 people have been killed and several others are injured. authorities are calling it a terrorist attack. no groups claimed responsibility so far as bringing as in a hoarder who is in neighboring lebanon life from beirut, sienna, no claim of responsibility yet, but the syrian regime is likely to blame the opposition. what more do we know about what's happening right now? well,
10:02 am
the authorities are calling this a terrorist attack. there has been no claim of responsibility this explosion in the heart of the syrian capital. clearly a security breach of bus carrying soldiers was targeted. so it was the military that was targeted. what we understand from stake media that there were 2 explosive devices that went off as the bus was passing, and according to them, there was a 3rd explosive device that did not go off and that they dismantled it. now it regime definitely has many enemies when they use the word terrorist, they mean the opposition. now of course, the armed opposition is among the group the, the regime enemies, but they are largely confined to the north of the country. also there is a iso which continues to operate in the center of, of syria and engage an ongoing clashes with the regime time and time again. and of course, there's also divisions within the security apparatus within the army within the regime itself. so we cannot rule out any of that. we can only speculate,
10:03 am
but clearly the regime believes it is the opposition. just a few minutes after that explosion was reported. heavy, heavy artillery shelling targets at a town in our reef hut that's in the southern it live countryside. the province is under the control of the opposition. we believe at least 10 people were killed, many of them children on their way to school. so this is being seen as some form of retaliation on the part of the regime, even though that this area comes under regular to a regular fire despite the ceasefire that has been in place since last year. so the guns may have fallen silent and syria. the country remains divided along front lines, but still there is no peace. zayna hodge are in be boot. thank you very much. let's discuss this further. now with joseph there, who's an affiliate professor with the war time in post conflict in syria project at the european university institute is joining us via skype from geneva. very good to have you with us, joseph. so glass fin, damascus. we've, as we've said her,

the international coalition estimates the numbers of i, summit state fighters between 821-6000 in iraq and in syria. so even though, as i said, introduction, we're still very far, i mean, a clear picture this shows once again that we're very far from any form of 70 in syria where there are to clean minutes really or economically where they're in a conflict situation. i hopefully arthritis the say to the regime they have targeted on the vehicle in the past in the east. but today in retaliation is in a said that we have the government forces bombing ed, areas that are supposed to be covered by the sci fi, which is agreed with turkey and russia. what does it say about the government's commitment to the c fire? i mean, are they serious about negotiating a piece? no, we have to be clear about this is not the 1st time. and the same room in the sanders
