Watchdog: Russian Airstrikes Kills Civilians in Syria

Сирия что известно о минометном обстреле авиабазы Хмеймим

It's also not clear whose airstrikes they were, as while initial reports said the warplanes belonged to the Syrian military, later reports quoted monitors as saying the planes belonged to the Russian military.

Almost 30 civilians, including children, have been killed by airstrikes in the rebel stronghold of Eastern Ghouta, outside the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Some 400,000 people in the area have been under siege by Russian-backed Syrian government forces since 2013.

The Observatory said Russian jets carried out the strikes in Misraba.

The deal excludes Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, but other larger rebel groups in eastern Ghouta are part of it.

The ministry said two Russian service personnel were killed in a mortar attack on the base by rebels, according to TASS.

The Syria Civil Defence said two children and two women were among the six people killed in the air strikes on Arbin, and that another three civilians were killed by government shellfire in Beit Sawa.

Paisley and Saddier hold big lead at South African Open
The pair were one shot ahead of England's Chris Paisley , who had seven birdies and a bogey in his round of 66. Ernie Els, a five-time victor of the South African Open, made the cut after a 70 moved him to 3 under.

Eastern Ghouta is one of four "de-escalation zones" agreed by Russian Federation, as well as regime backer Iran and rebel supporter Turkey, to help halt fighting around Syria.

Despite eastern Ghouta being designated as a de-escalation zone, it has witnessed severe shelling and confrontations between regime forces and armed Syrian factions.

Earlier this week, rebels overran a major military base in the heart of the Harasta district, triggering heavy air strikes on surrounding rebel-held territory.

The defense Ministry denied reports about the destruction of several aircraft videoconferencing.

Four bombs hit two buildings in a residential area, and the civilians were within.

Russia denied a report in daily newspaper Kommersant that seven Russian planes had been destroyed by rebel shelling at Syria's Hmeymim air base on December 31, the TASS news agency quoted the defense ministry as saying on Thursday.
