Report: Mortar rounds hit central Damascus
Two mortar rounds slammed into the central Abu Rummaneh neighborhood of the Syrian capital Damascus on Saturday, causing casualties and damage, state news agency SANA said.


"Two mortar shells fired by terrorists landed in front of the Dar Al-Salaam school in Nejma Square in Damascus," the agency said. It reported "injuries and material damage" in the incident, but gave no further details. State media uses the term "terrorists" to refer to opposition fighters seeking to oust the government of President Bashar Assad. (AFP)
