Six children have been killed after a nursery school in Syria was reportedly bombed by forces loyal to the Syrian regime.
Agonizing photos of young children covered in blood have emerged from the rebel-held city of Harasta, a rural suburb of the country’s capital, Damascus.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said 17 people, most of them children, were also injured in the shelling.
Local reports claim forces loyal to the government fired artillery that hit the kindergarten at around 10am local time.
Volunteer rescue group, the Syrian Civil Defense force also known as The White Helmets, shared photos from the scene and one of the children killed was identified as Jihad Qadado, son of martyred Syrian Civil Defense force member Abdulfatah Qadado.
