On Monday, intense bombing on the city of Duma, 14 kilometers east of Damascus, killed 13 civilians, including children.

The Civil Defense wrote in social media that the bombing killed 13 civilians, including five children and three women. The Civil Defense retrieved the bodies of two women and two children from under the rubble. The Civil Defense also noted that there were dozens of wounded.

Last night, Syrian loyalist bombings with explosive barrels and rockets killed five civilians in the city of Duma.

The Civil Defense reported that a roof collapsed, injuring two volunteers, while they were searching for trapped people under the rubble.

The Civil Defense documented that last night more than 75 shells from rocket launchers targeted the city of Duma. Civil Defense teams inspected the targeted residential neighborhoods after the bombing.

The bombings continue despite Russia's announcement of a cessation of military operations in Duma last Wednesday, followed by a relative calm with sporadic artillery shelling during the visit by a delegation from the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
