On Monday, aerial shelling by Russian and government warplanes, artillery, and missiles killed and wounded civilians in the towns of Eastern Ghouta.

The Civil Defense also said that an airstrike killed three civilians and wounded others, at an early count, in residential areas in the town of Jisreen, 11 km east of Damascus. Civil Defense teams evacuated the dead and rescued the wounded. Activists expect that the warplanes are likely to belong to government forces.
