DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Syrian state media says several mortar rounds have exploded in the capital Damascus, one of them wounding several people near the state news agency SANA.
SANA said the injuries resulted from two rounds that hit the Baramkeh area in the city's west, one near a hospital. It said several other mortar rounds landed in the neighborhood of Bab Touma, a Christian neighborhood on the east side of downtown.
It was not immediately clear who fired the mortars, and such sporadic attacks in Damascus have grown more common in recent weeks.
The government blamed "terrorists," its blanket term for anti-Assad forces.
