Rockets fired by Syria militants in Damascus kills 3


At least three people have been killed and 28 others wounded after rockets fired by Syria militants hit a neighborhood in southern Damascus.

"A mortar shell fired by terrorists fell behind a shop on Duwaliya road, killing three civilians and wounding 28 others," Syria's SANA news agency reported on Monday.

Another shell slammed into nearby Bab Sharqi district causing further casualties, while a third shell struck a house in the same district.

The report added that a shell also struck the Tishrin stadium in central Baramkeh district of Damascus during a football match, saying that "a number of staff and players were injured."

There were also reports of rocket fire by militants at Dahiyat al-Assad in Damascus province, whose residents are mostly supporters of the President Bashar al-Assad government.

On Sunday, Syrian government forces launched attacks against militants in the governorates of Damascus, Homs, Aleppo, Idlib, and Daraa and killed a large number of them

In addition, the Syrian armed forces captured many machine guns, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, hand-made rockets, and mortar shells.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of Army and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government has said that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and that a very large number of the militants operating in the country are foreign nationals.

Several international human rights organizations have accused foreign-sponsored militants of committing war crimes.
