#AceWorldNews – DERAA – Syrian rebels shelled a tent being used for election campaigning in the southern province of Deraa, killing more than 20 people, Reuters reported, citing a monitoring group.
At least 11 civilians, including a child, were among those killed in the attack in the al-Matar district of Deraa city on Thursday night, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday.
Syria is holding an election next month that is likely to give President Bashar Assad a third seven-year term.
About 30 people were seriously wounded in the attack, the Observatory said.
