    Amid the humanitarian pause in the conflict-torn territory of Eastern Ghouta, civilians continue to flee the area to escape the shellings and killings by militants.

    On February 24, the UN Security Council unanimously ratified Resolution 2401 that urged all belligerent parties to instantly halt all hostilities and adhere to a humanitarian pause across Syria in order to guarantee the safe delivery of humanitarian aid, as well as medical evacuation of those wounded.
