    The Daesh militants (outlawed in Russia) shelled al-Villat neighborhood of the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, local media reported Wednesday, citing anonymous sources.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Daesh terrorists fired several rockets, one of which hit a house, killing a woman, while injuring her husband and three children, the SANA news agency reported. The attack also damaged public and private properties nearby, according to the agency.

    ​On September 5, Syrian government troops supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces broke the blockade around Deir ez-Zor, which had been maintained by Daesh for several years. Syrian forces' operation on liberating the city from the militants is currently underway. Terrorists are shelling the city’s residential areas almost every day, while Daesh snipers are opening fire at civilians in front-line districts.
