Boys look at a pool of blood of one of ten victims of shelling at Bustan Al Qasr.

On July 24th, 2013, regime forces have shelled residential area of Bustan Al Qasr, killing a dozen of people and wounding many. Three mortar shells, likely destined for Karaj Al Hajis bazaar, missed its target and hit an apartment building.

There were no opposition positions in vicinity which could had been the target.

This has been a deliberate attack on civilians. Should these mortar shells fell 200 meters shorter, there would be many more dead.
