Douma (Arabic: دوما Dūmā) is a city in Syria. Its centre is about 10 km north-east of the centre of Damascus. Being the centre of Rif Dimashq governorate (which completely surrounds the Damascus Governorate), the town is also the administrative centre of Douma District.
During the Syrian unrest, Douma has been a major flashpoint and has witnessed numerous demonstrations against the Syrian government and armed clashes against the Syrian Army and Security forces.
