Bombardment of rebel enclave kills 18 in Syria

AFP

BEIRUT: Heavy Syrian regime bombardment of rebel-held Eastern Ghouta killed at least 18 civilians yesterday, a monitor said, as government forces appeared to prepare for a ground assault, reports AFP.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said air strikes battered the town of Hammuriyeh in Eastern Ghouta, leaving nine civilians dead. Another nine, including a woman, were killed in air raids, artillery fire, and rockets that hit elsewhere in the enclave.

“The regime is bombing Eastern Ghouta to pave the way for a ground offensive,” said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.

Held by rebels since 2012, Eastern Ghouta is now the last opposition-controlled pocket around Damascus.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has dispatched reinforcements there in recent weeks in an apparent bid to retake the region.

The Observatory and Syrian daily newspaper Al-Watan had said negotiations were under way for the evacuation of jihadists from the enclave.
