Syria Civil Defense rescue group, also known as the White Helmets, published a video showing rescue operation of a living child from under the rubble in Erbin city.

In Kafarbatna, a civilian succumbed to his wounds while a body of another killed civilian was found under the rubble by Syria Civil Defence rescuers, both lost their lives from Monday selling.

Monday death toll pushed up to 99 civilians, both Orient News correspondents reported.

Hundreds of civilians have been killed in the besieged enclave of satellite towns and rural areas on the outskirts of Damascus in one of the fiercest bombing campaigns of the seven-year-old war.

The United Nations believes 400,000 people are trapped inside the enclave where food and medical supplies were already running out before the assault began with intense airstrikes two weeks ago.
