DEIR EZZOR, Apr. 16 (Press Shia Agency) –ISIL terrorists have rocket-shelled the besieged neighborhood of Harabesh in Deir Ezzor city; 3 persons were reportedly killed, with 11 others injured, mostly children and women, a SANA reporter in the province said.

Assistant Health Director in Deir Ezzor Akram al-Jouri said that one woman among the people injured in the attack is in critical condition and underwent surgery, and aid was rendered to the other injured people in the only medical point in the neighborhood.

ISIL has been besieging Harabesh and other neighborhoods where around 1,300 families live in the eastern part of Deir Ezzor city for over 3 months, after the terrorists cut off the road connecting them to the rest of the city. Army helicopters airdrop food and medical supplies on semi-daily basis to alleviate the suffering of locals.
