DAMASCUS — A civilian is killed and 12 injured by a drone attack on a church as it was being inaugurated in central Syria, the official SANA news agency reports.
“One civilian was killed and 12 injured in a drone attack by terrorist organizations on a crowded gathering in Al-Suqaylabiyah city in the Hama countryside,” the news agency says.
It says the attack came during a ceremony to inaugurate the Ayia Sofia church.
SANA initially said that two people died in an attack by a rocket before correcting its earlier report.
