(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) Syrians seeking cover at a camp for displaced residents came under attack Wednesday by government forces, an opposition group said, unable to escape the violence that has tormented the country for 14 months.
Three people, including a young girl, were killed when regime forces shelled the camp in Daraa, said the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, according to a report of CNN.
Camps for residents displaced from besieged areas such as Homs have been set up in parts of Syria, though the violence doesn't necessarily stop.
The latest report of terror comes a day after a four-vehicle U.N. convoy was struck by an explosive device in northwest Syria, the United Nations said.
No U.N. personnel were injured, but three vehicles were damaged, said Ahmad Fawzi, spokesman for U.N.-Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan.
The attack on the convoy happened around the same time government forces opened fire on a nearby funeral procession, according to opposition activists.
At least 23 people were killed and 100 were injured in that attack, said the opposition group 'Avaaz.'
Another opposition group, the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, described dozens of people falling to the ground after government forces fired on them using heavy machine guns.
