In the Eastern Ghouta of Syrian, a recent day of air strikes has reportedly killed at least seventeen civilians. In the first, almost two weeks of the new year of 2018 ten medical facilities report significant damages. The damages are due to the air strikes in the surrounding areas, according to the local working class.
On January 6th, 2018 volunteer rescue teams report that there were dozens of airstrikes in the Eastern Ghouta areas in Syria. The volunteer rescue teams were wearing white helmets to protect themselves while saving the hundreds of people. The white helmets rescue groups say that four young children were some of the people who were dead. However, there are close to fifty people with injuries from the air strikes.
