The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that the explosions have triggered an outbreak of violence at a checkpoint near the mainly-Christian area of Jaramana.
Syrian state media are blaming terrorists for the incident, but have not provided any details.
The BBC’s Jim Muir says there are indications that government planes dropped at least two bombs in retaliation for the attack.
