In Eastern Ghouta, the Syrian regime has forced doctors to use expired drugs and scrabble for water as the number of dead reached 300 in three days. At least 260 people were killed and 500 injured in the rebel held-enclave of Eastern Ghouta between Monday and Tuesday. The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) said the Damascus Media Center monitoring group told CNN another 45 deaths had been reported in Eastern Ghouta on Wednesday.
