Foreign-backed militants have fired a mortar shell, killing three Syrian civilians in al-Ghouta District in the western province of Homs.

On Monday, the mortar shell, which fell near the Directorate of Health in al-Ghouta, also injured many people and caused material damages to houses and cars in the vicinity, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.

In another incident on the same day, foreign-backed Takfiri militants assassinated Sheikh Osama Tawfiq al-A'sar, Imam of the mosque of al-Qreir village in the countryside of Banias in Tartous.

Reports say that foreign-sponsored militants opened fire at sheikh al-A'sar in the farms of the village.

Syrian forces also launched attacks against the militants in the governorates of Idlib, Daraya, Lattakia, Homs, Daraa, and Aleppo on Sunday and killed a large number of the terrorists.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of Western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent about warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
