Missile hit in Ghouta may have killed over a dozen children

Syrian troops and allied militia have been waging a ferocious ground and air assault to oust rebels from Ghouta

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.
