Syrian rebels on Sunday launched a mortar attack against the Russian embassy in the capital Damascus, causing material damage, local sources reported.

According to the state news agency SANA, at least two shells were fired at the Russian embassy, one hitting the compound while the other fell nearby.

Syrian rebels in the suburbs of Damascus have previously struck the Russian embassy.

Russia is a key ally to the regime President Bashar al-Assad, and has been involved in the six-year war since September 2015.

The attack in Damascus came hours after a bomb exploded near a hospital in the rebel-held north-western city of Idlib. At least six civilians were reportedly wounded in the explosion, including two children.
