US, Israel-backed FSA continue targeting Syrians- killing 8 in Jdaidet Artouz, near Damascus


At least eight people, mostly women and children, have been killed in a bomb attack near the Syrian capital city of Damascus.

The state media reported that the bombing was carried out in the town of Jdaidet Artouz on Thursday.
Reports said nearly two dozen civilians were killed in two separate explosions carried out by the foreign-sponsored militants near Damascus on the same day.
Another deadly car bombing rocked the city of Qatana, about 26 kilometers (16 miles) southwest of Damascus, killing at least 16 people, including seven children, and injuring scores of others.
On December 12, a bomb attack was also carried out outside the main entrance to the Syrian Interior Ministry in the capital, causing major damage.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the violence.
The Syrian government says certain Western states, especially the United States, and their regional allies are fueling the unrest.
