Foreign-backed militants in Syria have attacked a hospital in the countryside of the capital Damascus, as clashes continue between armed terrorist groups and Syrian forces, Press TV reports.
The militants fighting against the Syrian government attacked the Harasta hospital on Wednesday, but there were no immediate reports of possible casualties or damages.
There are also reports of fresh clashes between the two sides in some other parts of the country, including the northern city of Idlib, where the government forces confronted militants near the Taftanaz military airport.
Meanwhile, residents of the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp, located in the capital, were reportedly fleeing the site following clashes between different militant groups operating inside the camp.
On Tuesday, at least 10 people were killed and many others injured in a car bomb explosion in the camp.
The camp came under siege as a result of clashes between foreign-backed militants and members of the Palestinian revolutionary committees.
According to sources inside Yarmouk, there were also deadly clashes between members of the terrorist Free Syrian Army and the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front inside the camp. Armed men affiliated to the al-Nusra Front have reportedly killed a number of Palestinian civilians there.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed in the turmoil.
The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants operating in the country are foreign nationals.
