At least 54 civilians have been killed in the Syrian government airstrikes in Syria's Eastern Ghouta on Thursday, according to sources from Syrian Civil Defense, APA reports quoting AA  

 

The airstrikes on civilian residential areas killed 19 in Arbin, 17 in Jisrin, 2 in Zamalka, 3 in Sabka, 3 in Misraba, 7 in Hamuriya, 1 in Bayt Sava and another in Madyara neighborhoods, the sources told Anadolu Agency. 

 

Civil Defense units, also known as the White Helmets, were dispatched to the scene for search and rescue as death toll was feared to increase.
