Damascus, Syria – Two civilians were reported dead and four others wounded on Sunday after being targeted by unknown gunmen in the district of al-Tal in the Syrian capital Damascus.

Ahmad Sabbagh, civil rights activist based in the city of Damascus, told ARA News that the attack took place in the main street of al-Tal.

The identity of the executers remained unknown.

In the meantime, clashes broke out between the pro- regime military forces and rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the town of Taiba in the western Ghouta of Damascus countryside, amid artillery fire by the pro-regime forces on the town from their nearby headquarters.

At least three pro-Assad soldiers were killed during the clashes, while two FSA fighters were hardly injured.

This coincided with dropping explosive barrels on the city of Zabadani, without reports of casualties, according to local sources.
