Russia concerned, outraged over US claims on attacking Syria – Moscow

This time, however, the USA missile strike will target not only military facilities of the Syrian army, but also government buildings in Damascus, including the residence of Bashar Assad in the Syrian capital.

President Bashar Assad's forces continued their assault on eastern Ghouta despite a United Nations resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire, as well as a five-hour daily "pause" ordered by President Vladimir Putin, the Syrian regime's main ally.

He, however, said those measures have been impeded by terrorist groups "and their operators, some of them members at the Security Council".

The report also said that Iran has been gradually expanding its zone of influence in the region hiding behind Russia's military support and relying on Hezbollah.

The latest batch of civilians was evacuated from the town of Medyara, which was stormed by the Syrian army on Sunday.

They include more than 300 militants from the extremist Ajnad al-Sham group and their families.

Troops pressed on with the assault on Tuesday and took some farmland around the town of Jisreen, Hezbollah's Military Media reported.

The Islamic State group controls two pockets of territory adjacent to Qadam.

Among other toxic chemicals, chlorine was found at the site and that the papers of the Jaysh al-Islam militant group were also discovered.

Haley said Russian Federation committed 16 days ago to a 30-day ceasefire "to stop the killing in Syria" and allow food and medicine to get to starving families in the nation.

Washington has not confirmed any such plan - and a small contingent of US forces is already in Manbij.

More than 19,800 children are among the dead, it said.

Last week, the White House accused Assad's close ally Russian Federation of ignoring the ceasefire and being complicit in the deaths of civilians in Eastern Ghouta.

Syrian men check the damage following Syrian government shelling on the town of Douma in the rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta on the eastern outskirts of the capital Damascus on March 10, 2018.

"We will allow civilians.to leave so they will not be hurt in case (Kurdish) fighters hold out in the villages, neighbourhoods, or buildings inside Afrin", he said.

Guterres said none of the Council's directives have been implemented: the provision of humanitarian aid and services has not been safe, unimpeded or sustained; no sieges have been lifted and not one critically sick or wounded person has yet been evacuated.

He did not say when the alleged attack would take place or provide detailed evidence to back his assertions.

Thousands of people had started to flee Afrin on Monday as the Turkish troops got closer to the town, heading toward nearby government-controlled areas. Damascus has claimed success of security some areas and bifurcated the Eastern Ghouta into three divisions: Douma and its surroundings; Harasta in the west; and the rest of the towns further south.

"After more than 20 days of the barbaric campaign and mass annihilation of eastern Ghouta. this has led to a deterioration of the humanitarian and food situation to a catastrophic level", it said in a statement.

But Hamza Birqdar, Jaish al-Islam's military spokesman, said in a video message online on Tuesday that the fighters would continue to defend the Ghouta till the end. The convoy contained food aid but many medical supplies were blocked by the Syrian regime.

"The situation of my mother has become very bad and we couldn't treat her inside Ghouta with the lack of medication, not to mention the soaring prices and the lack of everything else", Noura said.
