Smoke Rises From Buildings Amid Strikes on Douma

Shelling and airstrikes hit the city of Douma on the fringes of Damascus on Wednesday, November 15, according to local media activists. The reported bombings follow the delivery of 22 trucks of humanitarian aid to the city on Sunday.

Activist said some of the strikes hit a warehouse storing some of the aid. However, Storyful cannot independently verify this claim.
