Local media reported that areas in Eastern Ghouta, specifically Hazza and Ein Tarma, were subject to heavy aerial shelling, killing up to four civilians and wounding “dozens”, though it was unclear whether Russia or the Syrian regime was to blame.
@AJA_Syria cited al-Jazeera correspondent who reported “dozens of civilians, including women and children, were wounded by Syrian and Russian shelling of the towns of Ain-Terma and Hazza in Al Ghouta Damascus.”
Sources reported between two and four fatalities, the highest reported by Orient News. Three male victims were identified by name, two being killed in Hazza while the third in Ein Tarma.
Besides from @AJA_Syria who reported “dozens” of wounded, most of the remaining sources reported that just as few were left wounded.
Sources were not clear as to whether attribute blame to Russia or the Syrian regime. A couple of sources identified Russia as the culprit while most, including Violation Documentation Centre (VDC) and the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SN4HR) pointed to the Syrian regime. As cited above, @AJA_Syria, blamed both belligerents.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
