“Terrorists launched dozens of rockets at the Sheikh Maqsood neighborhood. Fourteen civilians were killed, 50 were admitted to the hospital with injuries,” an employee at the local hospital told RIA Novosti.
He added that three residential buildings had been completely destroyed.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in the foreign-sponsored conflict in Syria, which flared in March 2011.
Moreover, 6.36 million people have been displaced internally and more than four million others have fled the country since the beginning of the conflict. That accounts for 45 percent of the country’s population, which has shrunk by 21 percent.
Syria accuses Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar of funding and arming terrorist groups operating inside the country, including Daesh (ISIL).
