Four civilians, including one girl, were killed along with several wounded as al Nashabiya, eastern Ghouta, Damascus, was subject to aerial and artillery shelling, local media reported, though it was unclear whether Russia or the Syrian regime was to blame.
Like many parts of eastern Ghouta, aerial and artillery shelling intensified in Al Nashabiya in this period, especially striking in residential areas.
While multiple sources reported about the shelling, it was only Souriyati and the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SN4HR) who reported about fatalities, both reporting four victims. SN4HR added that a girl was among these.
Other reports mentioned that several were left wounded.
According to a few sources, such as Zaman al-Wasl, the Syrian regime was to blame. However, Russian culpability cannot be ruled out as several sources, including SN4HR and Enab Baladi, pointed to shared Russian/Assad responsibility.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
