Foreign-sponsored insurgents have killed a pro-government citizen who had joined hundreds of people at a demonstration held on the outskirts of Damascus to express support for President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The terrorists gunned down the demonstrator in the Yabroud neighborhood of Damascus.

The incident occurred hours after Syrian security forces engaged a group of militants near the western flashpoint city of Homs.

Reports say the army stormed insurgent hideouts in the city and killed ten armed men on Tuesday.
