    Armed groups in Syria continue shelling the Syrian capital.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — At least 14 people were injured after militants shelled several districts of the Syrian capital and its suburbs, SANA news agency reported Wednesday.

    According to SANA, citing a police source, the militants fired five rockets targeting the suburb of Assad, injuring three people, two of whom were children, with two more people injured when two rockets hit the Shaghour neighborhood, while another two shells targeted the Kashkoul neighborhood in Jaramana area resulting in no casualties. The Abbasyin area was later hit by a mortar shell, injuring nine people.
