Damascus Suburbs - SMART

On Saturday, two women were killed after loyalist forces bombed the city of Douma, 14 kilometers east of Damascus, using ground-to-ground missiles.  

The Civil Defense said on their official Facebook page that the injured civilians included women and children, who were transported to hospitals by Civil Defense teams. 

The Civil Defense pointed out that during the transportation of the injured civilians to hospitals, the loyalist forces targeted the city with heavy artillery shells. The bombing set fire to an apartment, and the Civil Defense attempted to extinguish it.

The Civil Defense added that four heavy artillery shells targeted the town of al-Nashabiyah. Civil Defense teams assessed the location after the bombing, and no casualties were reported. Activists said that the bombing came from the loyalist forces' bases in Eastern Ghouta's surrounding hillside.  

The Syrian Network for Human Rights has documented 40 massacres by the loyalist forces and Russia in Eastern Ghouta since Nov. 14, 2017. The massacres have resulted in the death of 729 civilians. The Syrian Network for Human Rights pointed out that the loyalist forces escalated the bombing and breached truce agreements during this period.
