Air strikes on Syria’s Ghouta kill 30 civilians: monitor


BEIRUT: Air strikes on Syria’s Eastern Ghouta killed 30 civilians on Saturday, a monitor said, almost a month into a blistering Russia-backed regime assault on the rebel enclave outside Damascus.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights could not say who carried out the strikes on the town of Zamalka.

The regime offensive has retaken 70 percent of the enclave since February 18. —AFP
