BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – Militants allegedly fired on a 300-family-strong convoy as they attempted to leave Eastern Ghouta, according to a representative from the Centre for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria in Afrin on Thursday.

“The column came under shelling a kilometre from the exit, where the relatives of Ghouta residents were heading to Mlekh. Later, mortar fire was started by the militants at the very exit, where the relatives of refugees were, as well as a group of Russian and western journalists,” the representative, Vladimir Zolotukhin, said.

The situation in East Ghouta has worsened during the past weeks. The UN Security Council adopted a resolution which requires all parties to put a stop to the conflict and provide a humanitarian break for at least 30 days in all Syria.

However, according to Russian Center for Reconciliation of Warring Parties, militants continue firing rockets and bombarding the area with mortar shelling.
