10 Kids Killed Near Damascus

The casualty reports from Syria are getting more horrific by the day. On Sunday, 10 children were killed while playing outside in the village of Deir al-Asafir, eight miles from Damascus. The kids had gone outdoors during a lull in the fighting when fighter jets attacked with cluster bombs. “None of those killed were older than 15 years old. There are two women among 15 people wounded, mostly hit as they were inside the courtyards of their houses,” Abu Kassem, a local activist told Reuters. “There were no fighters inside Deir al-Asafir when the bombing occurred. They operate on the outskirts. This was indiscriminate bombing.”
