Warplanes Launch 1st Bombings against Syrian Opposition in Damascus

BEIRUT Unidentified warplanes bombed on Wednesday several locations of the Syrian opposition on the outskirts of Damascus, killing a woman in the first attacks since the truce began in Syria in late December.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a United Kingdom-based information center, reported that the warplanes carried out six attacks against opposition positions in eastern Gout, the main bastion of opposition in Damascus, wounding nine people.

According to the SOHR, the bombings took place in the regions of Utahan, Haram and Natalia, located in the area of al-Mar, north of eastern Gout.

In recent days there were clashes between Syrian regime forces, backed by the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, and Islamic factions in al-Midair and a military base in al-Mar, where both sides have exchanged artillery fire.

A cease-fire was agreed upon by Russia, allied with the government of Damascus, and Turkey, which supports the opposition, but it excludes terror groups, such as Islamic State and the al-Qaeda-linked Jab hat Fatah al-Sham.
