Now Media reported, via ROP:

Five children were killed and 27 people wounded when mortar rounds hit a school in the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday, state television reported.

“The toll in the terrorist targeting of the St. John of Damascus school with mortar rounds has risen to five dead, all of them children, and 27 injured,” a news alert on Syrian state television said.

The regime of President Bashar al-Assad uses the blanket term “terrorists” to refer to the opposition.

Earlier, the interior minister told the official Al-Ikhbariya channel that 11 children had been hurt at the school in the majority Christian district of Qassaa, in central Damascus.

State news agency SANA also reported a second mortar hit a school bus in the Bab Touma neighborhood, injuring five children.
