Turkey - SMART

On Wednesday, the European Union called on Russia, Turkey and Iran to ensure a ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta and to allow humanitarian aid into the besieged areas of Syria.

According to Reuters, the demands come in a letter sent by the EU's Foreign Policy Chief, Federica Mogherini, to the foreign ministers of the three countries urging them on the issue as they oversee the Syrian talks in Astana.

Mogherini called on the three countries to "implement a genuine humanitarian ceasefire for at least 30-consecutive days throughout Syria." She urged them to "take all necessary steps to ensure the cessation of fighting and the protection of the Syrian people and finally the arrival of emergency humanitarian assistance and the necessary medical evacuations."

The government continues its military campaign on Eastern Ghouta, despite a truce declared by Russia in Eastern Ghouta two days ago. However, loyalist forces violated the Russian-backed truce amid repeated attempts to break into the region accross several points, despite it being only four days since the UN Security Council adopted resolution 2401 on a 30-day truce in Syria.

On Tuesday, the United Nations said that the bombing and fighting continues in Eastern Ghouta. It also stressed that there are more than a thousand wounded patients who need to be evacuated.
