Assad regime’s warplanes dropped on Monday multiple barrel bombs on the besieged suburb of Darayya in Damascus western countryside, activists said.
This attack isn’t the first, as Darayya has been under siege since November 2012 and has witnessed some of the worst bombardment during the Syrian crisis.
Mass destruction was caused in the scenes of the attacks, while clouds of yellow smoke climbed to the sky, many casualties were reported.
Children and women are the most vulnerable and the most affected in Assad regime’s indiscriminate bombardment.
Assad regime bombarded Darayya also hours after the arrival of its first food aid since 2012, residents said.
The reported violence on Friday came hours after the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) In cooperation with UN Offices delivered the second international aid convoy to the rebel-held town of Darayya overnight.
Darayya’s city council said 28 barrel bombs were dropped from helicopters, preventing the aid from being delivered to residents.
A member of the Darayya City Council said there had been “intense random barrel bombing” of the area over three hours until midday, hindering the distribution of the aid delivered overnight by the UN and Syrian Red Crescent convoy.
Daraya has been under siege since November 2012 and has witnessed some of the worst bombardment during the Syrian crisis.
The UN estimates that there are currently 592,700 people living under siege in Syria, with the vast majority of them – about 452,700 people – besieged by Assad regime.
