Hama – SMART

On Saturday, a Syrian government forces shelling on a village in Northwestern Hama, Central Syria, injured two civilians and a child.

The Civil Defense posted on its official Facebook page that the Syrian government artillery shelling on the village of Zayzoun severely injured a child and moderately injured two young men.

Activists said that the shelling source was the Syrian government military camp of Jurin. From the same military camp, the Syrian government forces targeted the nearby village of al- Ziyarah without reports of casualties.

Last Saturday, the Syrian government forces shelled two villages in Northern Hama, killing a National Liberation Front fighter and injuring a civilian.

The Syrian government forces frequently shell the areas outside the Syrian government areas, killing and injuring civilians, Free Syrian Army members, and members of the Islamist factions. The shelling also destroys public and private property.
