A Syrian official said Sunday that some reports about Syrian army snipers' shooting pregnant women and their unborn babies are "totally baseless."

An official from the Information Ministry, who has requested anonymity, said to Xinhua that all these reports came in an attempt to tarnish the image of the Syrian Army, which is fulfilling its duty to defend the country and the Syrian people.

"We deny such reports in all details and we consider them as part of a media war which is led by some Western and regional countries against Syria," the official added.

The Daily Telegraph's website reported Saturday that a British surgeon, who spent five weeks volunteering in a Syrian hospital, claimed that the snipers from the Syrian regime were shooting pregnant women and their unborn babies in a disturbing "game" of target practice.

The website also revealed an x-ray photo, which is provided purportedly by a charity named Syria Relief, showing a foetus with a bullet lodged in its skull.
