Damascus: A mortar shell slammed the Russian embassy in Syria`s capital Damascus Sunday, causing slight injuries to two people, Xinhua reported citing Russia Today TV.

The report gave no details, but the mortar was apparently fired from the hotspot district of Brazeh, where intense clashes have been raging on for days between the rebels and the Syrian government army.

Damascus residents have become used to daily mortar attacks from restive suburbs ringing the capital.

A day earlier, three people were killed and many others wounded when mortars slammed the suburb of Saida Zainab.
