Seven years since the deadliest chemical attack in Syria: Eastern Ghouta shows why return is impossible with Syrian regime in charge
The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) documented at least 25 arbitrary arrests in Damascus and its countryside, including Eastern Ghouta, in the month of May, while in June alone the number reached 112 detainees.

More than 40 raids were conducted by the regime forces on residential homes in the neighborhoods of “Al-Hijaria” and “Abd al-Raouf” in just one city – Douma, in Damascus countryside – during which they arrested approximately 30 young men who failed to join the ranks of the regime’s army. Similar raids occurred elsewhere, including Eastern Ghouta.
