2 killed as rockets hit Damascus
« on: February 05, 2015, 02:40:29 PM »

Syrian rebels unleashed a barrage of rockets on Damascus on Thursday, with terrified residents reporting at least two people killed.

Civilians hurried for shelter as almost 50 rockets, by the count of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group, fell in government-held central districts.

Locals said security forces in four-wheel-drive vehicles and pick-ups mounted with machine guns raced around otherwise empty streets.

The attacks came two days after the leader of the largest faction in the rebel-held eastern suburbs said the capital would be considered a "military zone?.

Zahran Alloush, commander of the Army of Islam, warned residents to stay away from security installations and keep off the streets during working hours.

Alloush wrote on Twitter that a list of military and security buildings had been targeted, but locals said the barrage had hit mostly residential areas
