Two terrorists were killed on Saturday when the booby-trapped car they were driving in blew up in a Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of Damascus, AFP reported on Sunday, citing Syrian state news agency SANA.

The blast at the Yarmouk refugee camp came on the same day that Syrian state media reported twin car bombs killed 27 people and injured dozens more at two government buildings in Damascus.

The Yarmouk refugee camp is the largest such camp in Syria, hosting some 500,000 Palestinians.
