Air strikes on the last rebel-held town in Syria's Eastern Ghouta killed 27 civilians on Friday, a monitor said, after talks sputtered over a deal for the battered town.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said dozens of air strikes hit the town of Douma.
"At least 27 civilians died, including five children," said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.
They were the first bombing raids on Douma since negotiations began around 10 days ago over a withdrawal of rebels and civilians from the town, the largest in Eastern Ghouta.
