Several civilians were reportedly killed and injured when up to four airstrikes struck the town of Harasta, eastern Ghouta, Damascus, local media reported.
LCCSY reported that “Russian warplanes launched four airstrikes with thermobaric missiles on the neighborhoods in #Harasta city in the Eastern Ghouta, which led to casualties among civilians and destruction of buildings.”
LCCSY was, however, the only source that identified a culprit, namely Russia. The two other known sources merely referred to “airstrikes”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
