The explosion at the Palace of Justice in Damascus was an attempt of terrorists to destroy evidence of their crimes, Syrian Minister of Justice Najm al-Ahmad told Sputnik Arabic.
Such actions on the part of terrorists are not surprising because they speak the language of murders, explosions and destruction, al-Ahmad said.
According to the minister, the suicide bomber who carried out a terrorist attack on the Palace of Justice wanted to destroy documents and evidence of the crimes committed by Daesh in Syria.
On Wednesday, a suicide bomber caused an explosion in the Palace of Justice in Damascus killing at least 31 and injuring 60. Later, a second explosion occurred in a restaurant injuring 20 people.
The suicide bomber, who blew himself up at the entrance of the palace, was wearing a military uniform and didn't cause any suspicion.
Had he entered the building, the explosion would have been much more destructive, al-Ahmad said.
The two explosions on Wednesday took place four days after a deadly twin suicide blast in Damascus.
On Saturday, two blasts occurred near Bab al-Saghir cemetery in Damascus. Syrian Interior Minister Mohammad Shaar confirmed that at least 40 people were killed and 120 injured as a result of the attack.
