Strikes hit Syria enclave after UN delays truce vote

Air strikes hit the Syrian rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta for a seventh straight day today after the United Nations again delayed a vote on a ceasefire. 

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Damascus government launched a devastating bombardment of the area just outside the capital last Sunday that has now killed nearly 500 civilians including over 100 children.

The Britain-based monitor of the war said, at least 21 civilians were killed in fresh strikes on Eastern Ghouta today, including 12 in the main town of Douma. 

It said, the strikes are being carried out by Syrian and Russian forces. Moscow, which intervened militarily in support of its Damascus ally in 2015, has denied any direct involvement in the Eastern Ghouta bombardment.
