There have been explosions at a school in the south of the Syrian capital, Damascus, causing casualties, activists and state media say.
Two rebel groups said the building, near a branch of Military Intelligence, was being used as a base by a pro-government militia and security forces.
They said it had been almost completely destroyed, killing several officers.
But officials told state TV it was just a school for the children of military families and the damage had been minor.
Meanwhile, mortars apparently fired during fighting between soldiers and rebel forces to the south also fell in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
