GENEVA – The fighting in Syria‘s besieged enclave of eastern Ghouta has reportedly driven all civilians out of the towns of Mesraba, Hammouriyeh and Mudeira, which had a combined population of 50,000 in December, a UN official said on Thursday.

The civilians were displaced to other areas not under government control, adding to the 15,000 or so people that the U.N. estimated were displaced within eastern Ghouta at the end of January, humanitarian spokeswoman Linda Tom said.
