    Published on May 12, 2019

    In Syria, insurgents fired rockets into a government-held Christian town in the northwestern part of the country today, killing six people, including five children who were playing near a monastery and injuring several others.

    State TV said the shelling just before noon caused widespread material damage to the town of Suqailabiyah.

    State news agency SANA said, Syrian troops retaliated by firing shells toward insurgents’ positions on the southern edge of Idlib province, the last major rebel stronghold in the country.

    Al-Qaida-linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, is the main insurgent group in the area.
