At least 80 reported dead in Syrian-government airstrikes near Damascus

Reports suggest Syrian government airstrikes northeast of the capital have killed at least 80 people.

Images taken from social media purport to show the aftermath of an attack on a market in Douma, some 15 kilometres from Damascus.

Rescue workers said at least 200 people were wounded in the assault.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said warplanes fired around ten rockets and bombed again after rescue workers had arrived on the scene.

A source in the Syrian military claimed airstrikes in Douma and neighbouring Harasta targeted the headquarters of the Islam Army rebel group.
