Chemical weaponry targeting civilians in Eastern and Western ALGhouta’s towns, leading to massive massacre – Wednesday, 21/8/2013 [Damascus province]

[Final report composed for Wednesday, 21/8/2013]

 

— Syrian Revolution General Commission was able to document 646 martyrs, amongst them 33 women and 22 children, killed in the chemical weaponry massacre committed by the regime. We do note though that the death toll is much higher and we are still working on documenting the names and photos of the martyrs. This report will be updated further as information floods in from medical points and activists regarding the exact death toll.

 ++++++++++

At around 2:45 A.M in the early morning of Wednesday, the regime’s forces began heavily bombarding several areas in Eastern Al Ghouta using rocket with warheads; the bombardment specifically targeted the following areas:

1] Al Zainia area in Ein Turma town

2] area behind Najeeb station near Zamallaka town

3] area begind Krash factory in Jobar district

 

Tens of rockets with chemical warheads targeted the areas as the mortar bombardment did not stop until sunrise, when warplanes then launched 20 airstrikes.

 

Hundreds of civilians then began flooding to makeshift hospitals across the Eastern towns of Al Ghouta, noting that even the medical team got affected by the gases due to the lack of masks.

Afterwards, activists reported that huge regime reinforcements were seen on Damascus-Homs railway and on Al Adaqi railway as the regime’s forces also cut off the Damascus-Qunaitera railway near Sehnaya town. More than 15 tanks were spotted near Al Abbaseyyeen sqaure, heading towards Al Abbaseyyeen garages; a number anti-aircrafts and Shabiha (thugs) buses/vehicles were spotted too.

In Western AL Ghouta, at 5:15 A.M. in the early morning of Wednesday, Mua’dameyet Al Sham town got targeted by more than 17 rockets with chemical warheads as well as by tens of tank shelling, leading to the martyrdom of tens of civilians, most of whom are women and children. Hundreds of civilians have been exposed by the chemical weaponry.

Regime has not stopped at that extent, but also launched tens of airstrikes after sunrise, leading to the fall of tens of casualties.

 

Makeshift hospital documented the martyrdom of 103 civilians, amongst them 15 children and 20 women and to the chemical exposure of 625 other civilians suffering from severe suffocation. Up to 34 houses were completely destroyed and up to 25 other houses were partially damaged.

The source of the bombardment was from the 4th Division’s base and from Military Al Mazzeh airport.  Intense clashes were ongoing on all of Zamallaka’s town, specially the eastern one and the western one.

 

Regime’s forces have also cut off Damascus-Qunaitera railway; a huge military convoy was spotted coming from the revolutionary guard’s base; the convoy included 10 vehicles, armoured tanks, artillery, and tens of soldiers.
