Ten civilians lost their lives Saturday when Syrian regime warplanes targeted residential areas in Douma, northeast of Damascus, a Syrian Civil Defense source told Anadolu Agency.
The source said that scores were injured in the attack.
Civil Defense teams rushed to the scene to extinguish the blaze and started searching for victims stuck under the rubble.
The Syrian regime has been besieging opposition-controlled Douma, preventing main supplies from reaching the city that has recently suffered an electric shortage because of the constant airstrikes.
At least 250,000 people have been killed since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in 2011, with 7.6 million internally displaced and over four million having fled to nearby countries.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
