A mortar attack on Al Qousour district of Syria’s eastern city of Deir ez-Zor left three civilians dead and six others injured.

DEIR EZ-ZOR (Syria) (Sputnik) — Reportedly, the shelling was carried out by Daesh (banned in Russia).

Several mortar shells exploded on a busy street near the Jami mosque. Women and children were among the dead and injured. Most of those wounded were taken to a military hospital.

On September 5, Syrian government troops supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces broke the blockade around Deir ez-Zor maintained by Daesh for several years. Syrian forces' operation on liberating the city from the militants is currently underway.
