Rebels target Russian citizens in Damascus, Syrian army kills terrorists in Hasaka

TEHRAN (FNA)- Armed rebels in Syria fired four rounds of mortars at Russian premises in Damascus on Monday.

The mortars hit Sharq al-Tijarah district which mostly hosts Christian citizens and killed a number of innocent Syrian citizens. There has yet been no report on the possible number of casualties and damage to properties by the attack.

Also, other reports from Syria said that units of the Syrian armed forces carried out a series of operations against the terrorist groups in Hasaka province, inflicting heavy losses upon them.

The operations resulted in the killing and injuring of tens of terrorists and destroying their cars in the resort area of Lifestone, Hasaka poultry farm and Esterahat Vazir al-Rai in Hasaka and its outskirts.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Sunday stressed that Syria has welcomed all the constructive and sincere efforts to find a political solution to the crisis, while it is also determined to confront and uproot terrorism.

During a meeting with a delegation representing a number of Mauritanian parties and popular organizations and unions, President Assad affirmed that Syria is able to root out terrorism thanks to the matchless unity binding its army and people who are full of life and faith in the homeland despite all the suffering and pressures that they face, the state news agency reported.

The President highlighted the important role of the pan-Arab parties and Arab unions and popular organizations in bolstering the Arab people’s awareness of the schemes aimed at fragmenting the region through pushing it towards absurd conflicts in a move to serve the Zionist enemy.
