The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

DA­M­AS­CUS: Syr­ian war planes car­ried out air strikes in the Ghouta area east of Da­m­as­cus yes­ter­day, de­spite an on­go­ing cease­fire in the area, the Syr­ian Ob­ser­va­tory for Hu­man Rights said.

The mon­i­tor­ing group said the air strikes hit the towns of Douma and Ain Terma in rebel-held Ghouta.

There was no im­me­di­ate com­ment from the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment or army.

Syria’s mil­i­tary de­clared a cease­fire start­ing at noon on Satur­day in be­sieged Ghouta, long con­trolled by the op­po­si­tion. The agree­ment had been reached in Cairo, spon­sored by Egypt and Rus­sia. Xin­hua
