Amid a reported 70 airstrikes across opposition-held eastern Damascus suburbs on April 3, a medical center in the town of Jisreen was severely damaged after being hit by several artillery strikes and airstrikes.

Unconfirmed Syrian reports cite that the Jisreen medical center served as one of the larger field hospitals for Syrian rebels in the area, most notably Ahrar al-Sham. The group has yet to issue a statement on any losses incurred in the airstrikes thus far.
