BEIRUT (Reuters) - A Syrian air strike on a rebel-held area near Damascus killed more than 30 people on Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group and opposition activists reported.

Syrian government officials were not immediately available to comment on the reported attack in Hamoria, a district in the Eastern Ghouta area that has been besieged by security forces.
