In Syria, government forces are continuing a massive bombing campaign on the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Ghouta. Video uploaded to social media on New Year’s Day shows massive explosions ripping apart entire buildings in Eastern Ghouta, which has been besieged by Syrian government forces since 2013. There are currently about 400,000 civilians in Eastern Ghouta, where supplies of medicine, food and water are dwindling.
