A commissioned officer staged Wednesday's bomb attack in Syrian capital of Damascus, an opponent has claimed.
Dr. Mohammad Suri, a prominent opposition intellectual, told the Anadolu Agency on Thursday that the attack on the building during a National Security Council meeting actually targeted Bashar al-Assad, but it failed.
Suri said that it was not a suicide attack, stating that it was staged by a commissioned officer from the opposition.
Assad's brother Mahir Assad was injured seriously in the attack, he said.
Suri said the blast boosted morale of the opposition.
