Fresh regime air strikes and heavy clashes shook rebel-held Eastern Ghouta on Sunday despite a UN demand for a ceasefire to end one of the most ferocious assaults of Syria’s civil war.
President Bashar al-Assad’s forces launched a major bombing campaign against the enclave on the edge of Damascus a week ago, and have since killed more than 500 people.
Local celebrities have now come forward demanding the genocide to stop.
Mahira Khan, Haroon Shahid, Mawra Hocane and many others took to social media to address the brutal killing of innocents in Syria, condemning the attacks.

“Open season” on #Syria currently. The events are just too, too disturbing. Latest is that the war is about to get much, much worse and bigger. 🤲🏻 May God keep the innocent in HIS protection.— Armeena 🦋 (@ArmeenaRK) February 25, 2018
