Rights Group Documents 14 Massacre Committed by Assad in East Ghouta in Two Months

The Syrian Network for Human Rights said that the Assad regime had committed at least 14 massacre in besieged East Ghouta in September and October that claimed the lives of 274 civilians, including 71 children and 40 women, in addition to leaving 1,150 civilians injured. The Networks said it had received many distress calls from medical centers operating in East Ghouta after they ran out of medical supplies. Most of the massacres resulted from air raids carried out by Assad’s warplanes that fired at least 82 missiles and barrel bombs on the residential areas, destroying 33 buildings besides causing damage to 41 others. The air raids also targeted three popular markets, two schools, a mosque, 35 cars, and two ambulances. (Source: Syrian Network for Human Rights)
