Damascus explosion targets state television.
Omran al-Zoabi said that the bomb on the third floor of the building caused severe damage, but only led to "minor injuries" to several people. No deaths were reported in the blast, and state television put the number of wounded at three.
"It is clear that the blast was caused by an explosive device," Zoabi said. "Several of our colleagues were injured, but there were no serious injuries, and no dead."
"We know who is behind this cowardly, desperate and deplorable act," he added, pointing the figure at an armed rebel opposition movement that has purportedly carried out similar attacks in the capital in the past.
"Nothing will stop the voice of Syria," Zoabi asserted.
The television building lies in the Omayyad district of Damascus, a highly guarded area surrounded by multiple security barriers.
Violence in the capital has continued,with fighters who are part of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assadsaying they are focusing on launching quick "hit-and-run" attacks against government targets, rather than taking control of districts.
The attack in Damascus came as Syrian government forces said they are ready to mount a "decisive battle" for the country's commercial capital Aleppo, even as rebels say they have made gains in the city's ancient centre under intense bombardment and strafing from warplanes.
