As the shelling of eastern Ghouta continued on its fifth day, four civilians were killed and up to “dozens” more wounded as Russia, possibly in cooperation with the Assad regime, carried out airstrikes in al-Aftis, Damascus, local media reported.
All sources, who provided a death toll, reported that four civilians were killed.
While some, such as HalabTodayTV, referred to “a number” of wounded, Step News Agency said that the strikes had left “dozens” wounded.
Most reports identified Russia as responsible, including HalabTodayTV and Step News Agency. However, the event remains contested as Orient News and the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed both Russian and Assad warplanes.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
