Rocket attack kills at least 29 in Damascus market

Islamic State seizes Damascus neighbourhood: monitor

According to the Police, rebels in the besieged Eastern Ghouta region fired the rockets at Kashkoul and six other civilians were injured in a separate attack to the west.

Russian Federation and the Syrian regime also continue to conduct airstrikes in Eastern Ghouta, where at least 30 were killed on March 18, 2018 alone from regime bombing runs.

The OPCW director said he also discussed issues related to the destruction of former Syrian chemical production facilities, the government's declaration of its chemical stockpiles and facilities, and "allegations of use of toxic chemicals as weapons in Syria".

Turkey's foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said his country was "sensitive" to reports of looting and promised Turkey "will not allow it".

A spokesman for the United Nations refugee agency, Andrej Mahecic, told reporters in Geneva on Tuesday that although tens of thousands have fled the fighting in eastern Ghouta, thousands more were "still trapped and in dire need of aid", adding that a shortage of shelters was "a major concern". It's also unclear if that figure included Russian mercenaries who operate in the country, namely to guard oil fields.

The International Committee for the Red Cross said it was able to deliver 25 tons of humanitarian aid items, like blankets, diapers, lamps, and water tanks, to displaced Afrin families.

She said the relationship included encounters in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, and Beverly Hills, California. She said: "We certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual but I have no knowledge".

UNHCR says hundreds of thousands of people are "still trapped by fierce fighting and in dire need of aid".

Separately, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to expand his military operations in Syria. His remarks are the latest criticism by the Turkish leader of Washington over its engagement with Syrian Kurdish militia. The regime forces could not immediately be reached for comment.

"A UNHCR team was on the ground in Nubol yesterday where they heard stories of their exhausting journey, walking long hours through the mountains", Mr. Mahecic said. It said dozens more were captured or wounded.

They were among hundreds of residents who returned Monday to the town's rubble-strewn streets, days after Syrian government troops rolled through the area as part of a month-old assault on rebels in the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus.

The militants circulated a statement on Twitter saying they took Qadam.
