Mortars land near Syrian presidential palace
DAMASCUS, Syria — A Syrian official says two mortars have exploded near one of President Bashar Assad's palaces in the capital Damascus.
The official said the rounds struck Tuesday near the southern wall of the Tishreen palace, in the capital's northwestern Muhajireen district, but caused only material damages.
No casualties were reported and it was unclear whether Assad was in the palace. He has two others in the city.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.
