(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) Heavy shelling by regime forces on Saturday targeted schools scattered across opposition-held areas along the outskirts of Damascus, activists said.

'Dozens of schools were targeted by government forces since Friday night, in the areas of Tadamon, Azamiyah Al-Sham and Zabandani,' activist Haytham al-Abdallah told dpa.

Al-Abdallah said the troops' shelling is aiming at destroying education and health facilities in opposition-held areas across Syria.

Elsewhere, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported heavy fighting in the northern provinces, especially in Aleppo, where opposing fighters staged a wide-scale attack on an army base at the outskirts of the city.

The observatory said the opposition attack has inflicted heavy casualties, but did not specify numbers.
