BEIRUT: Syrian state television is reporting that a shell has hit a street in central Damascus, killing five people and wounding 36.

The TV report said the shell was fired Saturday by “terrorists,” a term that the government uses for all opposition fighters.

It is not uncommon for opposition fighters in the suburbs of the capital to shell Damascus.

The shelling in Damascus came as activists reported intense clashes between troops and insurgents in the Damascus suburb of Daraya.
