On Feb. 27, the Syrian government attacked civilians in Eastern Ghouta with chemical weapons while under the first daily ceasefire.

The five-hour daily ceasefire, or “pause”, was suggested by the government’s ally Russia. Russia wanted a 30-day “pause” to allow the UN to send aid to civilians stuck in the warzone.

Meanwhile, the UN Security Council delayed their vote for a permanent ceasefire between the rebels and Syrian government. Since March 2011, pro-democracy protest erupted across Syria. These protest turned into a full-scale civil war after the Syrian government allowed guards to open fire on the anti-government demonstrators.

According to activists, 462 people were killed in a single week after the use of artillery weapons on civilian areas by the government, which is prohibited under international law.

Air raids targeted at residential areas made it impossible for aid to reach civilians. Aid workers said the Syrian army also confiscated the majority of the supplies meant for the people trapped in Eastern Ghouta.

On March 6, government airplanes bombarded the suburb, killing more than 70 people, according to The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). Advisors from SOHR said the death toll could continue to rise.

Syrian troops claimed they occupied one-third of Eastern Ghouta while activist describe the battles between rebels and

Syrian troops as “hit and run.” Control of territories is always changing with no defined winner.
