Syrian warplanes strike Eastern Ghouta despite Russian truce

A Russian call for a five-hour truce on Tuesday failed to halt one of the most devastating campaigns of the Syrian war, where residents said government warplanes resumed striking the eastern Ghouta region after a brief lull. Footage shows Syrian military jets flying over Eastern Ghouta and thick clouds of smoke rising between buildings after airstrikes. Hundreds of people have died during 10 days of government bombardment of the Eastern Ghouta, an area of towns and farms on the outskirts of Damascus.
