Egypt expressed on Wednesday its deep concern over the latest developments in Syria's Eastern Ghouta and the consequences on the humanitarian conditions in the region.
In an official statement، Egyptian foreign ministry said there is an immediate and urgent need for a humanitarian ceasefire to deliver aid and to evacuate the wounded to avoid a real humanitarian disaster.
Cairo renewed condemnation of shelling civilian areas in Ghouta، Damascus and all over Syria.
"Egypt continues its endeavors and contacts with all parties to find a way out of the dire humanitarian situation in the war-torn region،" the statement said.
The recent violence in Eastern Ghouta raised regional and international concerns about the innocent civilians besieged in the enclave.
Eastern Ghouta is part of the Syrian "de-escalation" zones included in a deal reached last May in Astana، Kazakhstan between the Syrian government and rebel groups.
