Local sources reported the death of three civilian men in the town of Hamouriya, eastern Ghouta, Damascus, following airstrikes, either carried out by Russia, the Syrian regime or both.
As a part of a larger aerial shelling of eastern Ghouta on March 1st, three civilians, identified by name, were killed in Hamouriya.
However, it should be noted that one of the victims, Mahmoud Hsain al-Homsi, died “due to wounds he sustained a few days earlier” as noted by the Violations Documentation Centre. This could possibly be in related to another tracked incident by in Hamouriya on February 25th, 2018, coded as R2911. But as this remains unclear, he will, as of now, be listed as a fatality on this date.
Several were reported wounded as well.
Reports were, however, unclear in terms of culpability. Some, including VDC and Twasul, identified the Syrian regime as responsible while Smart News Agency pointed to Russia.
Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed both the Syrian regime and Russia.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
