The Russian foreign ministry says its embassy in Damascus has been shelled twice, but there are no reports of injuries or major damage.

The ministry said in a statement that the attacks happened on Wednesday afternoon.

The embassy has been targeted numerous times in the past.

The ministry slammed the latest shelling as a “provocation aimed at derailing a peace accord in the country”.

A shell is reported to have hit an inner yard, while another landed near the diplomatic mission.
