Wounded children receive medical treatment at a field hospital after Assad Regime's attacks over Zamalka suburb of the Eastern Ghouta
Jaish al-Islam, one of eastern Ghouta's main rebel groups, said on Monday it had reached an agreement with the government's ally Russian Federation to evacuate wounded people, after communicating with Moscow through the United Nations.
French President Emmanuel Macron also threatened targeted strikes in Syria, telling reporters at a news conference in India that France would retaliate if it found "irrefutable evidence" chemical weapons had been used to kill civilians. Russian Federation has been controlling the Syrian civil war since 2015 in the absence of a serious US presence in the region, although there are issues surfacing for the Kremlin as their forces seemed to be bogged down in Syria for the foreseeable future.
Haley's statement follows French President Emmanuel Macron's statement on Monday that France would launch attacks on any Syrian facilities used to launch chemical weapons attacks, much as the USA did in April 2017. If the Security Council is unable to adopt the resolution, then the U.S.is ready to take matters into their own hands. Russia, Haley claimed, negotiated loopholes into a ceasefire deal struck by the Security Council in February.

Syria's authorities enjoy every right to continue the counter-terrorist operation in Damascus' suburb as it doesn't run counter to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2401, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Monday.

The army's onslaught in eastern Ghouta, backed by air and artillery strikes, has killed about 1,160 people since February 18, a war monitoring group said, as Assad seeks to crush the last big rebel stronghold near the capital Damascus. Only a limited number of convoys delivering medical supplies and food have succeeded in reaching civilians - and Syrian government forces confiscated most of the equipment on one load, he said. The terrorists, unlike Moscow and Damascus, do, in fact, frequently attack hospitals and other civilian facilities, and the attacks are well-documented, he added.
