Syrian Observatory says strikes hit two Ghouta towns, military source denies

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said air strikes hit two towns in the eastern Ghouta enclave on Tuesday despite a Russian-ordered truce, but a Syrian military source denied this.

The UK-based monitoring group said helicopters dropped two bombs on the town of Shifouniyeh and a warplane struck the town of Aftaris. The military source denied the report.
