    Two girls were killed and three other civilians were injured as result of the shelling in the Syrian town of Zahraa, located 12 miles north of the city of Aleppo, according to media reports.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Terrorists carried out Thursday a number of rocket attacks on the Syrian town of Zahraa, located 12 miles north of the city of Aleppo, killing at least two girls, local media reported.

    The Syrian Sana news agency noted that three other civilians were injured as result of the shelling, which also caused damage to property.

    Syria has been in the grip of a civil war for over six years. Government forces are fighting against Syrian opposition groups, who strive to overthrow President Bashar Assad, as well as numerous extremist and terrorist groups, such as the Daesh and Jabhat Fatah al Sham terror groups, both outlawed in Russia.
