Douma air strikes: one of Syria’s bloodiest attacks
The death toll from Syrian government air strikes on a market in an under-siege area of Damascus passes 100, making it one of the bloodiest attacks of the four-year war.
Rescue workers reported that 95 bodies had been identified and a further nine victims were to be identified after the army hit rebel-held Douma on the outskirts of the Syrian capital on Sunday.
Douma lies in the heavily contested Eastern Ghouta region to the east of Damascus. Eastern Ghouta has been the site of bloody clashes between the Syrian army and rebels, as well atrocities such as the 2013 chemical weapons attacks.
