DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) Syrian state media says a barrage of mortar shells has hit government-held areas of the northern city of Idlib, killing 14 people.
The state-run SANA news agency said mortars shells fell on several parts of Idlib on Monday, including a residential area and a market. State TV said at least 50 people were wounded in the attacks.
The provincial capital has been under the control of President Bashar Assad's troops since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in March 2011.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.
State TV said terrorists were responsible, a term the Syrian government uses for rebels trying to overthrow Assad's government.
