Syrian and Russian air strikes on a rebel-held enclave on the outskirts of the capital Damascus have killed more than 100 civilians for the second day in a row.

Air strikes, rockets and artillery fire have been battering Eastern Ghouta enclave in apparent preparation for a government ground assault.

At least 250 civilians have been killed since the escalation began on Sunday, among them dozens of children, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Yesterday's bombardment killed 106 civilians, including 19 children, the Britain-based war monitor said.

Yesterday, distressing images showing the corpses of around 20 young victims wrapped in blood-stained sheets on the floor of what looks like a medical facility emerged.

It was the second straight day that the civilian death toll topped 100 after 127 were killed Monday in Eastern Ghouta's bloodiest day in four years. 

The United Nations said bombs had hit six hospitals in the area on Monday (Feb.19) and another was put out of service yesterday.
