BEIRUT: Regime troops opened fire on a refugee camp in southern Syria on Wednesday, killing at least three people including a child, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The camp in Daraa province houses Palestinian refugees and Syrians displaced from the occupied Golan Heights, the Observatory's Rami Abdel Rahman told.
Blasts and gunfire were also heard early Wednesday in Daraa city, the Observatory said in a statement, without giving further details.
Regime forces also killed a young man in during a raid on Mleiha al-Aatsh village in Daraa province, the Britain-based watchdog said. Six men were arrested during the raid, the statement added.
Khan Sheikhun in northwestern Idlib province has been under heavy machinegun fire since the morning, the Observatory said, a day after it reported regime troops "massacred" 20 people during a funeral procession in the town.
During the funeral, a convoy of UN truce observers came under bomb attack in Khan Sheikhun, damaging three vehicles but causing no casualties, the UN said.
The watchdog updated its toll of people killed in Syria on Tuesday to 64, including two rebel fighters and 11 regular army soldiers. (AFP)
