Newborn Babies Reportedly Evacuated From Syrian Hospital Amid Russian Airstrikes

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 10 towns in the Eastern Ghouta region outside Damascus were bombed on Tuesday.

Pinheiro expressed deep concerns over the escalation of violence in northern Syria and areas around Damascus, and called on all warring parties to make the lives of civilians their paramount concern. On Sunday medics and rescue workers accused the government of launching a chemical weapons attack that caused breathing difficulties in at least nine people.

"There are hundreds of thousands of people who are internally displaced there, on the run, extremely vulnerable and they come under attack and under bombardment", Laerke said.

CNN could not independently verify these claims or videos.

Rouhani told Putin that Iran "is opposed to the presence of foreign forces on Syrian soil without the permission of the country's government and nation", in a reference to the ongoing Turkish assault on Kurdish forces in Syria.

We review the key developments in Syria, including dozens killed in attacks on Eastern Ghouta, the United Nations speaking out against violations in de-escalation zones and the Syrian army claiming it intercepted Israeli missiles near Damascus.

Haley told the U.N. Security Council that Russian Federation has delayed adoption of a council statement condemning the use of chemical weapons, including a reported chlorine gas attack Thursday in the opposition-held Damascus suburb of eastern Ghouta that injured over 20 civilians including children.

U.N. High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu has also called for a "meaningful response" to the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war, though it remains unclear what a "meaningful response" to a crisis would mean for the U.N.

Though he appears to have survived the insurgency, his forces continue to bomb and besiege opposition pockets across Syria, including in Eastern Ghouta and Idlib. The United States has spoken of six suspected cases of chemical attack over the past month.

Eastern Ghouta, home to about 400,000 people, is also reeling under a government siege that has prevented aid from getting in. Turkey, like during the genocide, kills women and children. The monitoring group did not mention allegations of chlorine use in Tuesday's attacks.

On Wednesday, the Syrian army said it intercepted an Israeli attack on a military position in Jamraya, northwest of Damascus.

The official state news agency SANA said the local fighters were battling Islamic State militants and the US -backed SDF in the area.

The onslaught came a day after a rash of airstrikes battered Syrian opposition areas, killing more than 28 people around the country and striking at hospitals and residential buildings in the northwestern Idlib province.

Wearing mismatched military gear, some in jeans and others with scarves wrapped around their faces, a few admit this is the first time they have ever touched a weapon, but say they feel compelled to defend their hometown.

Ambassador Haley also made remarks condemning a Russian draft resolution at the U.N. Security Council meant to address the chemical weapons issue.

"International coalition forces are bombing popular forces fighting "Daesh" and the (Syrian Democratic Forces) east of the Euphrates river and there are reports of casualties", statements carried by the stations said.

Those airstrikes increased after HTS fighters shot down a Russian jet over the province. The pilot ejected from his aircraft but died following an exchange of gunfire on the ground.

In apparent retaliation, rebel rocket fire on a government-controlled suburb of Damascus killed one child and wounded two people, state news agency SANA reported.
