In Syria, bombing continues against the rebel-held district of Eastern Ghouta, outside the capital Damascus, and against the rebel-held northern province of Idlib. War monitors say airstrikes carried out by the Syrian and Russian governments have killed nearly two dozen people in Eastern Ghouta and another 18 civilians in Idlib, where local journalists say a hospital and residential areas have been targeted. Activists also say nine people were injured in a suspected chlorine gas attack on the town of Saraqib on Sunday night—the second alleged chemical weapons attack in the last two weeks.
