Rocket attack on Damascus wounds eight

At least eight people were wounded in a rocket attack on residential areas of Damascus on Thursday, state news agency SANA said, in what appeared to the second heavy bombardment by insurgent group Islam Army in less than two weeks. Shells thought to be fired from the east of the capital could be heard exploding in the city, a witness said, and local media reported that Islam Army, a group based in the eastern Ghouta region on the outskirts of the city, was behind the attack. SANA said it was a “terrorist” attack, without giving further details. Islam Army’s leader said on Tuesday that his group would target the Syrian capital.
