Damascus: children at Christian school killed by rebel fire; 2 churches hit
Catholic World News - November 13, 2013
Syrian rebels fired mortar shells at a Christian school and two churches in the Damascus area, killing five children and injuring 27 others, according to a Fides news agency report.
An anonymous priest said that “neighborhoods are affected indiscriminately, just because they are the areas under the regular army control. And the civilian population pays the price.”
The areas targeted “are the most pluralistic, inhabited by people of different ethnicity and religion,” he added.
