200 civilians trapped inside a Syrian mosque
July 15 , 2013
200 people are trapped in a mosque located in the suburbs of the Syrian capital. Syrian activists reported that mortar shells have killed one person and have wounded several others.
The Syrian Coalition has sent Assad a strong warning and has asked for an immediate release of the people that are trapped inside Damascus mosque. It hasn't become clear as to whether or not the trapped civilians were looking for refuge inside the mosque. It is also possible that they were already praying inside when the fighting between rebels and Assad's army began.
