Up to three civilians including two children were killed and as many as 15 more were wounded following airstrikes targeting Douma, Damascus, local media reported. Sources were unclear whether Russia or the Assad regime was responsible.
Most sources reported that the incident led to the death of three civilians, with several reports saying that two children were among the victims. One girl was identified by several sources.
The strikes were reportedly part of a wider shelling of the countryside of Damascus. According to Al-Jazeera, there were “two dead and dozens more wounded in an aerial and artillery bombardment by the Syrian regime which targeted the cities and towns of Duma and Kafr Batna and Harsta in the countryside of Damascus.”
