Syrian regime strikes in rebel enclave despite ceasefire call

Syrian regime strikes in rebel enclave despite ceasefire call Syrian regime strikes in rebel enclave despite ceasefire call

The UN Security Council on Saturday demanded a 30-day truce across Syria, as one of the deadliest air assaults of the seven-year war pounded the rebel enclave of eastern Ghouta outside Damascus.

The Security Council authorized one exemption from the cease-fire.

But negotiations were held up over a number of issues, including when the ceasefire should begin.

"Today we are going to see if Russian Federation has a conscience", Haley told a group of reporters prior to the vote.

"We will stick to this resolution which is an global decision, and the Syrian government will also abide by it", Bagheri stressed. After Aleppo, once again scenes of people being pulled from the rubble of buildings and wounded children wailing for their mothers is splashing across our television screens. "The Syrian people can't wait".

The UN special envoy for Syria, Steffan de Mistura, had stressed the urgent need for a ceasefire to stop the "horrific heavy bombardment of Eastern Ghouta and the indiscriminate mortar shelling on Damascus".

Previously, the vote on the resolution was blocked when Russian Federation called the resolution "absolutely unrealistic" and made it clear it wouldn't support it. He said there have been no deaths reported since the resolution passed. The final vote was ultimately pushed back from Wednesday to Saturday, and critics claimed that this allowed Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to continue a days-long bombing campaign that killed hundreds.

The ceasefire resolution does not include militants from Daesh, al-Qaeda, and the Nusra Front.

All parties are required by the resolution to lift sieges of populated areas immediately such as eastern Ghouta, Yarmouk, Foua and Kefraya.

"We will watch this closely".

Sweden's UN Ambassador Olof Skoog told the council just before the vote that "the UN convoys and evacuation teams are ready to go". "It's time for the council to come together and shoulder its responsibility to urgently avert a situation that is beyond words in its desperation".

The official noted that the Syrian Red Crescent headquarters in Damascus was targeted by 10 shells fired by the so-called "moderate" terrorists located in Ghouta, killing and injuring people including a doctor.

Warplanes and artillery hit some towns in the eastern Ghouta enclave, said residents, rescuers, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. "The Syrian people have suffered enough".
