Fighting broke out east of Damascus between rebel and government forces Wednesday for the first time since both sides declared a cease-fire at the weekend, an activist group said, with airstrikes also hitting the besieged, rebel-controlled enclave. The escalations come as four battalions of Russian military police were deployed in safe zones in Syria, according to Russia's defense minister said. Airstrikes on three towns in East Ghouta killed a child and wounded 11 other civilians, taking the toll of wounded and dead to about 55 civilians in the last 48 hours, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
