Damascus Shelling War Crime, Those Responsible Should Be Brought to Justice -MoD

The situation in Eastern Ghouta has been tense over the past weeks resulting in ongoing shelling by local militants on Damascus and its suburbs, which prompts retaliatory fire from the Syrian pro-government forces.
The humanitarian corridor in Eastern Ghouta, the suburb of Damascus, has come under shelling four times, as terrorist continue provocations in Syria even during aid pauses, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
The ministry called militants’ actions a “war crime” and vowed to bring those responsible to justice.
Three civilians were injured as a result of continuous shelling of checkpoints in Eastern Ghouta by the terrorist groups, the defense ministry says.
The ministry also warned that the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front was preparing provocations in Eastern Ghouta in order to prevent the UN humanitarian convoy from reaching civilians. Militants in the outskirts of Damascus actively use underground tunnels for their raids, the defense ministry added.
