Death toll tops 200 in four days of Syria raids on rebel area: Monitor

Abrar Hussain

The death toll for the four-day assault on the rebel enclave on the outskirts of Damascus soared past 220 as Syrian regime jets bombed Eastern Ghouta on Thursday..Violence also flared up in the east of Syria, where the US-led coalition claimed it killed at least 100 pro-regime fighters in order to defend  its Kurdish allies.The clash has led to renewed tensions between Washington and Damascus, which has labelled the latest incident a “war crime”. The United States has repeatedly threatened the regime for its alleged use of chemical weapons.The United States announced its support for a United Nations request for a ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta.Residents in Eastern Ghouta barely had any time to mourn their dead or treat the wounded from the previous day of bombardment.”These are the worst four days that Eastern Ghouta has ever gone through,” said Hamza, an overwhelmed doctor at the local Erbin clinic who was treating wounded patients.”
