BEIRUT, November 21. /TASS/. Four shells fired by the Jaysh al-Islam militants hit the Al-Mazraa area in Damascus where the Russian embassy is located, the Al Mayadeen TV channel reported on Monday.

No damage or injuries among the embassy’s staff have been reported.

The SANA news agency reported that the shells hit a gym on the territory of the Al Feih stadium. The building was damaged.

Earlier reports said several people were injured in western Damascus on Monday. On Sunday, two people were killed and another 13 wounded in a mortar shelling of the Harasta suburb.

The news agency said the shellings are the work of the Jaysh al-Islam and Faylaq al-Rahman radical groups that support "the Saudi regime." The government forces are attacking the footholds of these groups near Eastern Ghouta near the capital.
