Damascus Suburbs: Yalda: Regime forces conducted a military campaign in Yalda, which resulted in 27 martyrs. Some victims were slaughtered with knives; others were set on fire and some were field-executed. After the regime’s shelling had continued for 6 days from the military barracks near the town and from Mount Qassioun, the town experienced a mass exodus after the regime’s army stormed the area, raided homes, and looted personal property. Until now, the town is experiencing a security siege and continuous shelling. The Kabbani Mosque has been targeted, and the Hariri Hospital was set on fire; this led to a severe shortage of medical and emergency supplies. There is a total power outage in the town.
