Syrian Civilians Reported Killed East of Damascus

The Khmeimim military airport, which hosts the biggest Russian airbase in Syria, was attacked for a second time in a row this week by a drone believed to belong to a faction in the countryside of Latakia, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Observatory reported more than 40 airstrikes on the suburbs known as eastern Ghouta.

The Syria Civil Defence said Russian jets fired "seismic missiles" on residential areas of Misraba overnight, causing several buildings to collapse.

Russia denied a report in daily newspaper Kommersant that seven Russian planes had been destroyed by rebel shelling at Syria's Hmeymim air base on December 31, the TASS news agency quoted the defense ministry as saying on Thursday.

The Syrian state media reported an operation in Eastern Ghouta was ongoing meant to break the siege of a military site nearby, though it's not clear if the airstrikes were related.

Seven children and 11 women were among those killed, said the head of the war monitor, which relies on a network of sources inside Syria.

The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura said on Tuesday that the Syrian government had accepted the Russian proposal to stop fighting in the area on November 28-29.

In the single biggest loss of military hardware for Russian Federation since it launched air strikes in Syria in autumn 2015, more than 10 servicemen were wounded in the attack by "radical Islamists", the report said.

Russian Federation says it has carried out a partial withdrawal but it will still keep soldiers and bases in Syria. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million others displaced, according to United Nations officials.
