An airstrike has killed 12 members of a foreign-backed militant outfit, including two commanders, in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta, where the Syrian government is conducting a counterterrorism operation.

The UK-based so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Wednesday that the strike was conducted against the Failaq al-Rahman group in Eastern Ghouta a day earlier.

The group bears ties with the so-called Free Syrian Army militant group.

It cited “activist reports” as saying that the aerial operation was carried out by Russia.

Rami Abdulrahman, Observatory’s director, named the commanders as Abu Mohammad Saif and Abu Mohammed Jobar.

Backed by Russian airpower, Syria has been conducting counter-terrorism operations in the suburb to free the sizeable civilian population there from militant control.

Militants have been raining rockets on Damascus from the suburb area, while using the civilians there as human shields, preventing their exit through safe passages set up by Russia and blocking their access to humanitarian aid.
