At least nine people were killed Tuesday after shelling from an attack hit a school just outside Damascus, Syria, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The Batiha School, which is located in a refugee camp northeast of Damascus was hit by shelling of mortar fire, the Los Angeles Times said.
According to the New York Times, the Syrian government says that the rebel fighters are the cause of the attack.
The New York Times reported that an activist in Damascus said it is still unclear which side of the conflict is to blame. That activist told the New York Times that the area was usually very calm.
