Airstrikes reportedly hit several towns in Barada Valley in the Damascus governorate, killing five people and injuring more than ten, on December 28, <a href="" target="_blank">pro-opposition local media said</a>.

The strikes hit a water facility in Ain Fija that supplied water to the capital Damascus, the same source said.

<a href="" target="_blank">Pro-government media</a> reported that rebel militants had bombed the water facility and <a href="" target="_blank">cut off water</a> for more than six million people in Damascus.

The UK-based <a href="" target="_blank">Syrian Observatory for Human Rights</a> said that heavy fighting was reported between the Syrian regime and Islamic rebel factions in Barada Valley. A leak of fuel in the water facility forced the Syrian regime to cut the water supply to Damascus, the Observatory said.

This video was shared by a pro-opposition media group and is described as showing the aftermath of strikes on the facility.
