🇸🇾 Syria forces launch assault on rebel-held Douma | Al Jazeera English

At least 40 civilians, including eight children, have been killed in Syrian government air raids on the rebel-held city of Douma.

The raids ended a ceasefire that had been in place for almost two weeks.

The government defended the shelling of Douma, saying it was in response to rebels killing civilians in neighbouring Damascus.
