At least five children were killed by rebel fire on a school in the southern Syrian city of Daraa.
Five children were killed and 15 wounded in terrorist shelling of a primary school in the Al-Sahary neighborhood of Daraa. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, also reported the rocket fire on the school, saying at least six people had been killed, five of them children.
It said that at least 25 people were wounded in the attack, and that the death toll was likely to rise because a number of the wounded were in critical condition.
Rebel forces control most of Daraa province, but the provincial capital is largely controlled by the government.
