Syria: 20 killed in regime attack

ANKARA/DAMASCUS (AA) – At least 20 people, most of them children, were killed in an attack by Syrian regime forces in Damascus’ Eastern Guta district on Thursday.
According to local sources, multiple air attacks were conducted against a primary school and a hospital in the Deyr Asafir neighborhood of Eastern Guta. The attack left at least 20 people dead and 30 injured.
It was also claimed that civilian defense unit members are among the dead.
Syria has remained locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the regime of Bashar al-Assad cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
Since then, more than 250,000 people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced, according to UN figures.
