At least seven civilians, including two children, have lost their lives in a rocket attack by foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants against a residential district in Syria’s west-central province of Hama.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency SANA that terrorists positioned in the de-escalation zone of the neighboring province of Idlib fired several rockets at Na'ur Jurin village on Monday afternoon.

One of the projectiles struck a vehicle, leaving seven people dead. A number of civilians sustained injuries as well.

The rockets also caused substantial damage to public property and several houses in the targeted area.

Separately, four people suffered wounds of different severity after several rockets launched by Takfiri terrorists struck areas in al-Suqaylabiyah city.

An unnamed medical source at al-Suqaylabiyah Hospital said the quartet were admitted with shrapnel injuries, and that they had received the necessary treatment.
