Turkey, SMART

On Sunday, the United States Department of State called upon Russia to pressure the Syrian government to end the bombing on Eastern Ghouta.

Heather Nauert,  the spokesperson for the United States Department of State, said on twitter that Russia has to undertake what Moscow approved and voted for to achieve a ceasefire in Syria, including Eastern Ghouta. Nauert was referring to the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 2401.

On Feb. 24 2018, the Security Council approved tResolution 2401 to achieve a truce and ceasefire in Syria, allowing  the UN unconditional evacuation of patients, allowing medical staff and humanitarian aid workers access, and lifting the siege imposed by different parties on besieged areas, including Eastern Ghouta.

Nauert’s statements came after meeting with Raed al-Saleh,  the Head of the Syrian Civil Defense. Nauert noted the Civil Defense’s role in Ghouta, stressing the need for immediate humanitarian aid to be able to enter the area.

Nauert quoted al-Saleh as saying that there are 1000 patients, who need evacuation from Eastern Ghouta.  

On Saturday, Bassam Abdul Salam, the Head of Local Council of the al-Marj Area, warned that loyalist forces could intensify the siege on Eastern Ghouta in a situation similar to that which occurred in al-Zabadani, Daraya, and Maddaya in Western Damascus.

Since Feb 2018, loyalist forces and its supporting militias backed by Russian warplanes have been bombing Eastern Ghouta, killing and injuring hundreds of civilians as well as destroying infrastructure.
