Damascus: At least 20 people, including women and children, were killed Sunday when armed rebels shelled two towns in Syria`s northern province of Aleppo, a radio report said.

The victims were killed when rebels fired Grad missiles and artillery shells at the pro-government towns of Nubbul and al-Zahara in the countryside of Aleppo, Xinhua reported.
Both towns are inhabited by people from the Shiite minority.
The attack came in the wake of some rebels` reports that Syrian troops backed by paramilitary groups had killed tens of Sunni people during operations in the coastal city of Banyas.
