Accusations that Syrian and Russian bombing of Ghouta killed civilians are unfounded

Summary of Disinformation

Accusations that Syrian and Russian bombing of Ghouta killed civilians are unfounded. Accusations are baseless and with no concrete data.

Disproof

Since the Syrian Government and their allies escalated their offensive against opposition-held Eastern Ghouta on 4 February, there have been more than 1,200 civilian casualties, including at least 346 killed and 878 injured, mostly in airstrikes hitting residential areas, according to reports documented by the UN Human Rights Office.

On February 22, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres called the situation in eastern Ghouta “a human tragedy,” saying the U.N. cannot “let things go on happening in this horrendous way”.
