An unknown number of civilians was reportedly killed or injured in alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrikes on Saqba on March 17th, 2018, according to local sources.
The pro-regime source @addouniatv reported: “Martyrs and wounded residents of Saqba as a result of terrorists targeting civilians as they leave their towns”.
Step News Agency, however, stated that Syrian regime and Russian warplanes continued to carry out airstrikes and artillery attacks on several locations in eastern Ghouta, among which Zamalka, Harasta and Saqba, killing in total 45 civilians. It is unclear if and how many civilians died in Saqba.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
