Assad or Russian-waged air and artillery shelling of Hamouriya, eastern Ghouta, Damascus killed at least five civilians, including one woman, and wounded several, local media reported.
Followed by days of intense shelling of eastern Ghouta, including Hamouriya, the death toll reportedly reached five on Tuesday, February 20th. The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SN4HR) reported “at least” five fatalities, including one woman in Hamouriya.
@LaLaKdaho and SN4HR identified four of the victims by name.
A civil defence member, cited by Masrawy News said that many civilians were still left under the rubble, expecting more dead and wounded, while adding that Hamouriya had been bombed with rockets carrying cluster bombs.
Also, the local hospital reportedly went out of service due to “systematic bombardment” by air raids, barrels of explosive aircraft helicopters and rockets, as reported by Damascus Media Center.
While Masrawy News as the only one pointed to Assad regime culpability, the remaining sources blamed both Assad and Russian forces, why the event remains contested.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
