Rif Dimashq - SMART

On Tuesday activists documented 98 civilians, most of them women and children, killed from intensified bombing by the loyalist forces and Russia on the towns and villages of Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus.

Activists briefed SMART on statistics concerning the distribution of casualties as following: 20 in Hammouriyah, including a child and a woman, 18 in Beit Sawa, 14 in Saqbah, including three children, 11 in Hazza, including four women and two children, four in Jisrin, 10 in Misraba, including two children and one woman, six in Otaya, including four children and a woman, five in al-Nashabiyah and Douma, including four children, and one victim in each of Zamalkah, Shayfunieh and Aftaris.   

Casualties in most of the villages and towns of Eastern Ghouta were killed from air raids by the loyalist and Russian forces. Victims in al-Nashabiyah were killed by loyalist missile bombings from nearby bases.

On Monday, the Rif Dimashq provincial council and the Syrian interim government called upon the negotiation commission to suspend all negotiations with the Syrian government and its allies until the military operation in Eastern Ghouta is stopped.

Earlier on Monday, the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, said that the previous arrangement in Aleppo, according to which the loyalist forces forced most of the people of Eastern Aleppo to leave for Idlib, can be applied to Eastern Ghouta.

The loyalist forces have besieged Eastern Ghouta for years now. The siege was intensified in the last few months, coinciding with heavy bombings and a ban on entering humanitarian aid, causing the injury and death of thousands of civilians due to the bombings, malnourishment and the lack of treatment.
