BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The rebel forces in the East Ghouta region of Damascus fired several mortar shells and rockets into the Syrian capital on Sunday, an Al-Masdar field correspondent reported this afternoon.

According to Al-Masdar’s correspondent in Damascus, the rebel forces fired more than 40 rockets and mortar shells into the the Qassa, Bab Touma, Duwela, and Jaramana districts of the capital, killing at least five civilians and wounding ten others.

Among the five civilians killed were two children that were leaving their school in the Jaramana district on Sunday – three of their classmates were also seriously wounded.

Several rockets struck the area around the Jaramana elementary school, forcing the Syrian government’s civil defense forces to rush to the scene of this attack in order to help escort the children to safety.

Below is the footage from the rebel attack on the elementary school in Jaramana:

Assad must stay

They showed at the french TV, the wounded in the east Ghouta. Some children.
But may be certain, french TV will never show the crimes of the rebells.
One side has every right, and the other must shut down.
Shitadists are the good mens…
France should host them and keep them for ever…
But france is not courageous… just a lot of f*****g bastards…

French TV is the new Pravda. Dictator ship on the run in France. Bad.

The areas the rebels are launching these missiles from need to be controlled by the SAA.
