At least 10 people have been killed by aerial bombardment in the opposition-held Damascus suburb of Ein Tarma, according to a UK-based monitor.

Axar.az reports citing Aljazeera.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said at least two children were among those killed in the air attacks on Friday.

The assault took place in the eastern Ghouta region, which has been partially besieged by the Syrian government since 2013.

Located about 15km outside of Damascus, the region is the biggest remaining opposition bastion in the Syrian capital's suburbs.

SOHR said several people were seriously injured and the death toll was expected to rise.

In recent weeks, government forces have been heavily bombarding Ein Terma, which links the eastern Ghouta area to the opposition-held Damascus neighbourhood of Jobar, according to SOHR.
