The blast occurred in front of Iran's culture center building but the complex sustained no damage.

Eye-witnesses said that the one who was badly injured and is in critical conditions could be the driver of the car which was blasted.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.

A number of Iranians have been abducted by unknown gunmen in Syria over the past months and after unrests spread in the Arab country.

Efforts to secure the release of the Iranian nationals are still underway.
