'Hell on Earth': No respite for Syrian rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta

Latest update : 2018-02-27

By François PICARD

Russian President Vladimir Putin's daily five-hour truce in Eastern Ghouta looks to have already broken down with the UN reporting that fighting has continued in the region. Both sides are holding the other responsible, with Russia's military on Tuesday accusing rebels of shelling residential areas in Damascus. After the sieges of Homs and Aleppo, another grim endgame unfolds in a civil war marked by staggering brutality.
