It has been nearly seven years since the start of the Syrian conflict.
Human rights organizations estimate almost half a million people have been killed and more than 12 million displaced, half the pre-war population.
This week, the government forces launched a heavy strike against Eastern Ghouta. More than 400 people were killed since Sunday, according to monitoring groups.
