叙利亚国家电视台说,星期三有一枚炸弹在联合国观察员下榻 的大马士革一家酒店附近爆炸,造成三人受伤。

报道说,这枚炸弹放置在一辆运送燃料的卡车上。

联合国官员还没有对这起爆炸事件发表评论,但据信没有联合国工作人员受伤。

联合国安理会定于星期四讨论叙利亚局势问题,联合国在叙利亚的监督使命授权期限将于8月19号期满。

中国官方的人民日报星期三发表文章,批评西方国家谈论在叙利亚领空设立禁飞区的可能性,声称这类评论会损害联合国的斡旋努力,并会破坏安理会的团结。

人民日报重申中国致力于通过外交方式解决叙利亚危机问题。联合国安理会几项有关如果叙利亚继续对平民使用重武器,就对叙利亚实行制裁的决议,都遭到中国和俄罗斯的否决。


Syrian state television says a bomb has exploded near a hotel used by United Nations observers in Damascus, wounding three people.

The report said the blast Wednesday was caused by a bomb planted on a fuel truck.

U.N. officials did not immediately comment, but none of the wounded are believed to be U.N. staff.

The U.N. Security Council is due to discuss the situation in Syria on Thursday, days before the observer mission's mandate expires on August 19.

China's official People's Daily newspaper on Wednesday criticized Western nations for talking about the prospect of a no-fly zone of Syria, saying such comments undermine U.N. mediation efforts and harm the unity of the Security Council.

The paper also reiterated China's commitment to a diplomatic solution to the crisis.  China has joined Russia in vetoing U.N. Security Council resolutions threatening Syria with sanctions for using heavy weapons against civilians.
