Assad regime airstrikes have bombed the city of Erbin and Beit Sawa in Damascus eastern countryside with tens of barrel bombs, killing many civilians.
At least 7 people were killed on Monday (February 5) after regime airstrikes hit the Popular Marketplace in Beit Sawa, Orient News’s Hadi al-Munajed said.
“Five people were also killed by regime airstrikes in the city of Erbin in Eastern Ghouta. One civilian succumbed to his wounds in Hamoriyya”.
Orient News’s correspondent said the death toll rose to 28 after the Assad regime targeted the city of Harasta.
Erbin, Harasta, Hamoriyya and Douma are among the most targeted cities in the Eastern Ghouta which has been under the regime’s siege for years.
People in Eastern Ghouta have made urgent plea to humanitarian organisations to save civilians from Assad regime’s indiscriminate attacks.
The United Nations said about 400,000 civilians besieged in the Eastern Ghouta area face "complete catastrophe" because aid deliveries are blocked by the regime and hundreds of people who need urgent medical evacuation have not been allowed outside the enclave.
