Even as violence in Syria is causing international concerns, it has now emerged that an air strike on a school in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta may have killed as many as 15 children and two women.
The victims, as per reports, were using the school’s basement as a bomb shelter.
It has been stated by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that the bombing raid hit Arbin.
It need be mentioned that the town is a dwindling rebel-held enclave of Ghouta.
It has been under attack from government troops for over a month.
The reports suggest that as many as three missiles from a single air strike hit the school.
Since February 18, Syrian troops and allied militia have been waging a ferocious ground and air assault to oust rebels from Ghouta, just east of Damascus. >
