Syrian rebels shell Damascus which resulted in civilian death.

Eleven people were killed in rebel rocket fire on the Syrian capital Damascus. The deaths were in the Duwaylaa neighborhood on the southeastern outskirts of Damascus, with most of those killed appeared to be civilians.

When rebels shell Damascus, civilian injuries mount. At least 20 people were also injured in the Friday shelling.

State news agency SANA, citing a police source, said Saturday that shelling on the area had killed four people and injured 25.

Rebels in strongholds on the outskirts of the capital regularly fire rockets into Damascus, often killing scores of people, many of them civilians.

The regime also regularly carries out air strikes on rebel-held areas around Damascus, particularly the Eastern Ghouta region, where aerial assaults in August alone killed 377 people, according to Doctors Without Borders.

Rights groups have criticised both rebels and the regime for indiscriminate fire that largely affects civilians.

The shelling on Damascus came as an Islamist rebel group that often fires on the capital began an assault on Syria’s largest prison.

Jaish al-Islam began the attack on Adra prison near Damascus on Friday, seizing two buildings.

More than 300,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began with anti-government protests in March 2011.
