By Ellen Francis and Angus McDowall BEIRUT (Reuters) – Pro-government forces pounded the rebel-held district of eastern Ghouta district on Tuesday, in a surge of violence which a war monitor said has killed at least 250 people since Sunday night. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was the highest 48-hour death toll in the Syria conflict since a 2013 chemical attack on eastern Ghouta, the last major rebel bastion located near the capital Damascus. There was no immediate comment from the Syrian military.
