About 30 civilians have been reported killed in air strikes on two towns in the rebel-held Eastern Ghouta area outside Syria’s capital, Damascus.

The Syria Civil Defence said one of its rescue workers was among 18 people who died when what witnesses identified as Russian jets bombed Misraba, reported BBC.

Another six people died in suspected Russian strikes on Arbin, it added.

Some 400,000 people in the area have been under siege by Russian-backed Syrian government forces since 2013.

The Syria Civil Defence said Russian jets fired “seismic missiles” on residential areas of Misraba overnight, causing several buildings to collapse.
