Caption : Harasta. This city, located in the governorate of Rural Damascus, known for its agriculture. Since the heavy fighting started in 2012, almost the entire population has been affected. The area was under siege for more than five years and suffered constant air attacks for 33 days, just before reconciliation in May 2018. Harasta was the first site in eastern Ghouta to be visited by ICRC teams after three months of attempts. Accessibility to the town has improved slightly with the opening of the main transport route, which is secured by a checkpoint and reserved for civilians.
