"400 thousand civilians in Eastern Ghouta live hell on earth"
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that 400,000 civilians in East Guta live hell on earth, also called for a cessation of hostilities to enable humanitarian aid deliveries, and the evacuation of the sick and wounded.
While the Syrian regime continued its attacks in East Ghouta, where hundreds of people lost their lives, 1550 people were wounded; at least 310 people lost their lives during ongoing attacks since Sunday.
The human drama in East Ghouta in Syria is deepening day by day.
The number of civilians killed in the last three days in the area under the siege of the Assad regime's forces has exceeded 300. 13 hospitals and health centers in the region have become unusable due to air strikes.
The organization of Doctors Without Borders, which is in the conflict area, reported that the attacks have resumed since November, that the number of injured persons in hospitals has increased dramatically in the last three days, that injuries cannot be cured. Most injuries cannot even come to hospitals to be treated, especially medical supplies such as blood bags, antibiotics, and anesthesia it is difficult to find.
United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for the suspension of all military activities by stating that 400,000 civilians were "living hell on earth" because of the conflicts in East Ghouta.
Guterres said that the UN Security Council should fulfill its responsibility to find a political solution in Syria, "I believe Eastern Ghouta cannot wait. I am calling for the suspension of all military activities and the granting of humanitarian aid and medical evacuations."
The International Humanitarian Relief Agency spokesman Paul Donohoe said, "The greatest fear of recurrence in East Aleppo is that the progress of the army, the bombardment, and the scarcity rightfully shocked the world for the capture of East Aleppo, and now we are worried about seeing it begin."
13 million people in Syria are now in need of humanitarian aid. In the civil war that started seven years ago, millions of people had to leave their homes. The number of those who have lost their lives so far in conflicts throughout the country is around 500,000.
