Decades after the bloody Hama massacre, Syrian regime head Bashar al Assad has managed to cling to power, like his father, under the averted gaze of world powers.
Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons says toxic chemical contained 'reactive chlorine' used in Douma in 2018.
A 23-page report released by the UN Commission of Inquiry said that through the widespread and systematic" bombardment of Eastern Ghouta and the continued denial of food and medicine, pro-regimeforces perpetrated a "crime against humanity."
Under the deal, all Jaish al Islam fighters will shift from the eastern Ghouta pocket to Jarablus "within 48 hours", regime-run SANA news agency reports, a day after an alleged chemical attack blamed on Assad regime killed over 40 people in Douma.
Of Syria's estimated 10 million children, 8.6 million are now in dire need of assistance, up from about half a million after the first year of war.
The Russian General Staff says the rebel fighters are still leaving the town of Douma for the opposition-controlled north and the evacuation will wrap up in the coming days.
Syrian regime leader Assad and Russia deliver an ultimatum to rebels saying they must accept regime rule or leave the besieged area northeast of Damascus.
Jaish al Islam opposition group will put down heavy weapons and leave Douma town of the besieged enclave for northern Syria, according to regime media reports.
Russia-backed regime forces have recaptured the vast majority of the enclave through the combination of a deadly air and ground assault and evacuation deals.
Jaish al Islam, a militant group which controls the town of Douma, denies Russian claims that it agreed to evacuate the last pocket of eastern Ghouta.
Residents of eastern Ghouta were trapped for five years, but now they’re forced to leave. This is what they had to say before leaving their homes.
As a mass evacuation continues from eastern Ghouta to Idlib under a Russian-brokered deal also guaranteed safety for remaining civilians, medics who have been systematically attacked in hospitals have no option but to leave.
