    Militants resumed rocket attacks on Damascus residential neighborhoods on Monday, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported from the site citing the local police.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The police said several people were wounded as Jaysh al-Islam terrorist group militants shelled five projectiles during the day's first attack, which fell on Al Mazza 86 neighborhood.

    As part of the so-called Arab Spring, protests in Syria erupted in 2011 and resulted in clashes between the government forces and opposition. Since then, the Middle Eastern country has been mired in a war, with the Syrian government fighting numerous opposition groups and terrorists.
