According to White Helmets, the Assad regime and its allies targeted a shelter in the Arbin town of Syria’s besieged Eastern Ghouta, killing of 37 civilians.

In statements made on its social media accounts, the civil defense group said fighter jets had been used to hit the shelter inhabited by civilians with inflammable "napalm" bombs.

Initial reports suggest at least 37 civilians, mostly women and children, were burnt to death; the death toll is expected to increase further.

Civilians remain trapped in the region and have been unable to get out of their shelters due to intense airstrikes carried out by the regime and Russia.
