UN Security Council unanimously backs Syria ceasefire

UN Security Council unanimously backs Syria ceasefire
With Russia's backing, the UN Security Council unanimously backed a 30-day ceasefire in Syria to allow for humanitarian aid deliveries and medical evacuations.


The resolution demanding the ceasefire "without delay" was adopted this evening as Syrian government forces pounded the [terrorist]/rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta.

More than 460 civilians, including more than 100 children, have been killed in the seven-day offensive on the rebel-held enclave, where UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said 400,000 Syrians are living in "hell on Earth".

Negotiations ran into problems over a key provision of the text that specified when the ceasefire would begin.
