ISIS fired a barrage of rockets on residential neighborhoods in Syria's ancient city of Palmyra, killing five civilians including two children, a monitoring group said Monday.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported fierce clashes between the militants and government troops on the outskirts of the city's 2,000-year-old UNESCO world heritage site.
"At least five civilians, including two children, were killed Sunday night when ISIS fired rockets on numerous neighborhoods in Tadmur," the Observatory told Agence France-Presse, using the Arabic name for the city.
"It's the first time that ISIS has fired so many rockets on the city," said Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman, who gathers information from a network of civilians, medics and fighters in Syria.
