As the Syrian regime continues its intense airstrikes against the population in rebel-held eastern Ghouta and Idlib governorate, the United Nations has called for "an immediate cessation of hostilities" throughout the country.

According to official SANA news agency, the Syrian army continued its operations against Daesh in the isolated pockets in Hama, Aleppo, and Idlb, culminating in regaining control of 29 villages and towns.

From 2013 Eastern Ghouta is totally under government siege.

The U.N. mission in Damascus warned Tuesday of "dire consequences" to the humanitarian crises in Syria, identifying seven areas needing urgent relief. After seven years of conflict in Syria it appears many parties finally agree on something: they want the U.S. out of the country.

The opposition blames President Bashar al-Assad's regime, which denies involvement.

The Syrian government launched an offensive in December to recapture the province, large parts of which are dominated Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a rebel coalition that absorbed al-Qaeda-linked fighters past year. The Syrian military and rebels have both been accused of using chemical weapons throughout the almost seven-year conflict, but such charges against the Kurds were rare. His comments are yet another sign that is preparing to push its ongoing offensive against Syrian Kurds in the northwestern part of the country eastward, toward territory controlled by US and coalition forces.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag on Sunday said USA forces in could be targeted by Turkish troops if they are spotted wearing YPG "uniforms", should Ankara decide to expand operations into northwest Syria.

Russian Federation proposed a rival press statement eliminating references to Thursday's attack and to "the unacceptable level of violence in Syria, particularly in eastern Ghouta".

"Over the last 48 hours, the scale and ferocity of attacks [in Idlib and Eastern Ghouta] increased dramatically resulting in multiple reports of civilian casualties and airstrikes that have reportedly hit at least three hospitals", the commission said in a statement Tuesday.

In a statement, Paulo Pinheiro said the spiraling violence had made "a mockery of the so-called 'de-escalation zones"' - an agreement reached past year among Russia, Iran and Turkey to stabilise the lines of conflict and open corridors for humanitarian aid.

"If we can't even take the first step for establishing accountability for chemical weapons use, we have to seriously ask ourselves why we are here", Haley said.

The United Nations called on Tuesday for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Syria of at least a month as heavy.

The global chemical weapons watchdog, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, expressed "grave concern" over the "credible allegations".

Iran, meanwhile, maintains a significant military presence in Syria, bolstered with fighters from Iranian terrorist proxy organizations, such as Lebanon-based Hezbollah. It said one of its workers was killed by an airstrike while attempting a rescue in the area.

The US-led coalition battling the Islamic State group said Wednesday it had carried out defensive strikes in the eastern Deir Ezzor region against Syrian pro-regime forces.

So far, more than 340,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict, which began in 2011 with anti-government protests that then morphed into a brutal civil war. "If anything, these have been serious escalation areas".
