The terrorist attack took place at 11:30 local time before the Muslim noon prayers, just when a police shift was taking duty.
Parts of the victims´ bodies were spread all over the area of the blast and paramedics were picking them up, while experts were starting investigations.
Scores of angry residents gathered at the scene to protest against the terrorist violence and in support to President Bashar al-Assad and his security forces.
