BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the militants in the East Ghouta region fired several missiles and artillery shells into Damascus city, killing and wounding scores of civilians.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the militants fired a missile into the Kashkoul District, hitting a crowded market in the city.

The correspondent added that the death toll is rapidly rising, with more than 20 civilians already reported dead as a result of this attack.

In addition to the attack on Kashkoul, the militants also wounded one woman and five children in the Mezzeh District of Damascus after they launched several indiscriminate artillery shells into the area.
