Several people have been killed and scores of others injured in what Syrian activists said was a Scud missile attack in the country’s east.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is anti-Assad, said six civilians were killed and more than 30 injured by the surface-to-surface missile launched by Syrian government forces overnight on Thursday in Raqqa.
A local activist network put the death toll in the attack on the Euphrates valley city at 35 people.
Activists say the missile was fired from the Syrian Army’s Third Division military base in the suburbs of Damascus.
Raqqa is the only provincial capital lost to the regime since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad erupted in March 2011.
More than 120,000 people have been reported killed in Syria since in the 32 month-old conflict.
