Syrian Army Pounds Rebel-held Damascus Suburb, Say Activists

Monday, 07 August 2017 10:37 AM

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian opposition activists say government warplanes have bombed a suburb of the capital Damascus where President Bashar Assad's forces are fighting insurgents.

Monday's violence in the eastern Damascus suburb of Ein Tarma comes amid a truce in the area that went into effect last month.

Ein Tarma is controlled by the Failaq al-Rahman rebel group that does not recognize the truce reached by Russia, Turkey and Iran who support rival groups.

The three countries approved a plan in May to create four "de-escalation" zones in Syria.

The Syrian Civil Defense group, more popularly known as the White Helmets, said several people were wounded in Ein Tarma.

The Civil Defense and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said several people were wounded in attacks on the nearby suburb of Mudira.
