Foreign-backed armed terrorists in Syria launched mortar attacks on a Christian-populated district and also the Russian embassy in the capital city of Damascus on Sunday.
The terrorists attacked the historical and Christian-populated district of Bab Touma in Damascus with mortar shells today, killing several civilians and wounding many more.
The armed rebels also launched mortar attacks on the Russian Embassy in Damascus on Sunday.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
