Eastern Ghouta residents plead ‘What truce?’

UN Security Council Resolution 2401 was adopted unanimously on Saturday, which calls for a 30-day ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta to allow the delivery of badly-needed humanitarian aid. However, Russia and the Syrian regime continue shelling the city despite the UN call. The suburb has been under siege for the last five years and humanitarian access to the area, which is home to 400,000 people, has been completely cut off. In the past eight months, forces of the Assad regime have intensified their siege of Eastern Ghouta, making it nearly impossible for food or medicine to get into the district and leaving thousands of patients in need of treatment.
