Damascus bombs, mortar fire kill three people

World News : Twin bombings and mortar fire killed three people and wounded 22 near the Syrian capital’s famed Ummayad mosque on Thursday, state news agency SANA reported.

“Three people were killed and 22 wounded in terrorist attacks with mortar rounds and the explosion of two bombs,” SANA said, citing police officials.

The attacks took place on Mardam Bek Street and in the Kalassa district, near the outskirts of the historic mosque and the bustling Hamidiyeh market.

Rebels in neighbourhoods on the outskirts of Damascus have regularly fired rockets and mortar rounds into the centre of the city.

In recent weeks, the attacks have caused increasing numbers of casualties, with four children and a man killed on Monday when a shell hit a school bus in the Bab Sharqi neighbourhood.
