On Sunday, Russian and loyalist bombings on Eastern Ghouta killed 39 civilians. The Russian and loyalist forces used different kinds of weapons to bomb Ghouta.

The Civil Defense reported in social media accounts that 15 Russian airstrikes that included napalm and phosphor bombs killed eight civilians in the city of Arbin. Russian bombings on Arbin coincided with loyalist helicopters dropping 19 barrel bombs on the city. Loyalist artillery forces also shelled Arbin.

Activists reported that Russian airstrikes and loyalist artillery shelling killed ten civilians, including a child in the city of Harasta.

The Medical Office of Harasta noted in a statement seen by SMART that Russian and loyalist warplanes targeted the office, injuring a member of the staff , damaging infrastructure, vehicles, power generators, and internet service providers.

On Saturday, the death toll increased to 28 civilians, mostly in the city of Duma. Bombings hit most of the cities and towns outside the loyalist forces' control in Ghouta.  

Loyalist forces are about to divide Eastern Ghouta after they gained control of the town of Misraba.

The Syrian government besieged Ghouta five years ago, and have intensified their bombings on the enclave with support from Russia and foreign militias since Feb. 18. The bombing has killed and injured hundreds, mostly civilians, and destroyed the infrastructure and hospitals of Ghouta. The bombing continues despite the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2401, which demands a 30-day ceasefire in all of Syria and permission for humanitarian organizations to provide aid and evacuate the injured civilians.
