Syrian warplanes backed by Russian air power launched new raids on town in Eastern Ghouta


After the United Nations Security Council voted yesterday on a ceasefire in Syria, Syrian warplanes backed by Russian air power launched new raids on a town in Eastern Ghouta.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 41 civilians were killed in yesterday's strikes, including eight children. Russia has denied taking part in the assault. The British-based monitor said at least 127 children are among the 519 dead in the bombing campaign that the regime launched last Sunday on the rebel enclave, just outside Damascus. 

The bombings come as with Russia's backing, the UN Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day ceasefire in Syria to allow for humanitarian aid deliveries and medical evacuations. The resolution, demanding the ceasefire without delay, was adopted last night. 

Quickly following up on the vote, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will speak by phone today with Russian President Vladimir Putin to push for the truce to take hold "in the coming days," the Elysee palace said in a statement. To this end, France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will also go to Moscow on Tuesday.
