Local sources reported that 18 civilians were killed by alleged Russian or Syrian regime forces near a cemetery in the city of Saqba, Damascus governorate, on March 20th, 2018.
@AJA_Syria tweeted that “Syrian executed 18 civilians on the ground near the cemetery of the city of Saqba, Ghouta, Damascus.”
Other sources also reported that civilians were killed by Syrian regime ground troops, but the Syrian Network for Human Rights wrote that 18 civilians had been killed “at the hands of the Syrian/Russian regime forces”. Hence, this incident is rated as contested.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
