Two civilians were killed and three others were injured when a shell hit their car west of the Syrian capital, Damascus, in the morning on July 21.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said that the civilians were traveling on a road near the town of Sasa when a shell landed next to their vehicle, blowing it up.
Local sources identified one of the victims as 3-year old Qamar Liwa al-Abd. The girl’s mother, Mariam Nasir al-Masri, was among the civilians injured in the shelling.
The source of the shelling has not been identified, so far. Sasa and the areas surrounding it are under the complete control of government forces.
Damascus has witnessed several small terrorist attacks, since the beginning of this year. On June 27, Talib Ibrahim, a Syrian political analyst who is known for his pro-government views, survived an assassination attempt, which injured his wife and son.
