State TV says “terrorists” set off a bomb outside a Syriac church.

A car bomb blamed by the Syrian regime on “terrorists” exploded on Saturday in front of a church in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor, state television said.

“Armed terrorist groups have again violated the truce, by setting off a car bomb blast in front of the Syriac church in Deir al-Zor, causing significant material damage to the church facade,” the broadcaster said, using the regime’s term for armed rebels.

Opposition activists, however, accused the regime of staging the attack.
