DAMASCUS, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- A motar shell fired by armed men Sunday landed at Syrian General Publication Establishment in the capital Damascus, injuring a number of workers and leaving material damages, the state-run SANA news agency said.
The attack set parts of the establishment alight and caused big damages to the printing machines as well as trucks used to freight and distribute school books, SANA said.
The attack is the latest in the recently intensified violence that has engulfed most Syrian cities, including the capital and Aleppo, Syria's largest city and economic hub.
Most of Aleppo's factories and governmental establishments have been looted and destroyed, local and foreign reports said.
The Syrian government accuses the rebels and radical groups of targeting the country's infrastructure.
