One civilian was killed and others were left injured, local media reported following aerial shelling of Zamalaka, eastern Ghouta, Damascus, carried out by either Russia, the Syrian regime, or both.
al-Jazeera’s correspondent in eastern Ghouta reported how “raids of the regime and Russia targeted residential buildings with internationally banned cluster bombs, explosive barrels and napalm bombs in Zamaleka”. Other reports merely mentioned that warplanes had struck the town.
According to Step News Agency and Smart News Agency, one civilian was killed by the shelling and “others” were left wounded.
Smart News Agency reported that the warplanes were “likely to be Russian”. However, the incident remains contested as others, such as al-Jazeera, pointed to shared culpability between the two belligerents.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
