At least two civilians have been killed less than two hours into a truce in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta, activists said, as Syrian government forces launched fresh attacks in the rebel-held Damascus suburb.

Syrian warplanes launched several air raids in Douma and Harasta on Tuesday, Mahmoud Adam, a spokesman for Syria’s Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets, told Al Jazeera.

Alaa al-Ahmed, a local activist, told Al Jazeera that the attacks started at 9:30am (7:30 GMT) on Tuesday, 30 minutes after a Russia-backed ceasefire began.

The truce was meant to allow civilians to evacuate from the rebel-held enclave, which has been under continuous aerial bombardment since February 18.

Keep bombing. Use barrel bombs and thermobaric bombs. Americans support the bombing. Forget Washintgton DC and UN they belong to Satan.

Kirk Wilson says:

Al Jazeera is paid by the same people as IS. Of course you are putting out to stop the bombing of the organization that you financially support. Supporting terrorism will never be forgotten or forgiven and your children and their children will suffer once your oil runs out.

Nobody is coming to save Ghouta. Once it has been cleansed of Terrorists and their families it will be on to the next Terrorist stronghold. There are still some pockets.

To Assad anyone who oppose him is a terrorist and Russians are the one who do the work.
