Russia denies role in strikes killing civilians

AFP

MOSCOW: The Kremlin yesterday denied involvement in air strikes on Syria’s rebel-held Eastern Ghouta enclave that monitors say have killed at least 250 civilians since the start of the week, reports AFP.

“These are groundless accusations. It is not clear what they are based on. No specific data has been given. We do not agree (with them),” said presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov in response to a US briefing saying that Russia was responsible for the attacks.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has also blamed Russian warplanes for the strikes.

Bombardment of the enclave on the outskirts of Damascus on Tuesday killed 106 civilians, including 19 children, the Observatory said.

It was the second straight day that the civilian death toll topped 100, after 127 were killed Monday in Eastern Ghouta’s bloodiest day in four years.

The strikes left an important hospital out of action, further limiting the little medical aid accessible to besieged civilians.
