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 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.

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".
