White House accuses Russia of killing civilians in Syria's Ghouta

WASHINGTON - The United States on Sunday made its strongest accusation to date of Moscow's complicity in civilian deaths in Syria's besieged eastern Ghouta region, saying Russian military aircraft conducted at least 20 daily bombing missions in Damascus and eastern Ghouta between Feb. 24 and Feb. 28.


"Russia has gone on to ignore (a UN ceasefire's) terms and to kill innocent civilians under the false auspices of counter-terrorism operations," the White House said in a statement, adding that the Russian jets took off from Humaymim Airfield in northwest Syria.
