The United Nations Security Council unanimously votes in favor of a resolution demanding a 30-day truce in Syria 'without delay' to allow aid access and medical evacuations.
The resolution was adopted on Saturday after several delays and a flurry of last-minute negotiations.
At least one Syrian civilian has been killed and nearly a dozen others sustained injuries in a fresh wave of attacks launched by militants holed up in the Eastern Ghouta against the capital Damascus.
According to a report by the state television on Saturday، a civilian was killed in shooting in al-Majd district in the capital’s suburbs، and four others were injured in Damascus’ Mezzeh 86 neighborhood after they came under mortar fire.
The report added that seven other civilians were also wounded after militants fired at least 54 shells at Hamsi Street in Jermana district south of Damascus.
Earlier، rocket attacks caused damage across the capital and left some casualties. The attacks come only one day after the terrorists launched scores of mortars and rockets at residential neighborhoods across Damascus.
