From Fox News:
Several girls at an elementary school were the latest victims of Islamic State terror in Syria Tuesday, when activists said militants shelled the school, killing at least nine students.
As many as 20 other students at the all-girls school were wounded, some of them seriously, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which claimed ISIS was responsible.
Syrian TV blamed “terrorists” — the term the government uses for all armed groups fighting against President Bashar Assad’s forces.
The school is located in the northeastern city of Deir el-Zour, which ISIS and Syrian government forces have fought to control. Analysts say ISIS has controlled much of the surrounding oil-rich province since 2013, but the government has gained ground inside the city.
