The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said that the shelling took place in the town of Tel Aran. There were two separate incidents, during the course of which, a total of twenty civilians were killed.
Seven people were killed when forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad fired on a car. A further 13 people were killed in a shelling attack on Tel Aran.
