Earlier in the day, Syria's official SANA news agency said buses have been waiting near the safe corridor to transport the people leaving Eastern Ghouta to a housing center set up by the government, but no civilians have so far managed to get out.

A United Nations convoy delivered food and medicine to the town of Douma on Monday, but aid agencies say Syrian authorities blocked numerous health supplies, including trauma and surgical kits as well as insulin.

On Monday, 94 civilians were killed amid Syrian government air strikes in Eastern Ghouta, despite a supposed five-hour truce, according to the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM), which operates medical facilities there. Activists and the Observatory say the pauses have not been enforced. However, almost half the enclave has been taken by government forces in recent weeks.

Representatives of worldwide humanitarian organizations and the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria have agreed to hold a meeting in the near future to discuss further steps on humanitarian aid delivery to Eastern Ghouta, according to the Center's representative Vladimir Zolotuhin.

We review the key developments in Syria, including a Russian military cargo plane crashing in Syria, Moscow offering rebels in Eastern Ghouta safe exit from the area, and the SDF saying it will redeploy 1,700 fighters from eastern Syria to Afrin.

A man stands on the rubble of a damaged building at the besieged town of Douma, Eastern Ghouta, Damascus, Syria March 5, 2018. "Food for civilians was in short supply or prohibitively expensive and high rates of acute malnutrition were observed", he said.

The United Nations says 400,000 people are trapped in the towns and villages of the eastern Ghouta, under government siege for years and already running out of food and medicine before the assault.

Monday's shipment was the first to enter eastern Ghouta amid weeks of a crippling siege and a government assault that has killed hundreds of civilians since February 18.

He was forced to step down and was pushed into the vehicle before leaving the jail said ET reports. The CBI had on September 1 past year said there were "good, cogent" reasons for issuing the LOC.

To make matters worse, some of the trucks turned back without ever unloading their supplies.

"The majority (of people) in Eastern Ghouta want to escape the embrace of terrorism".

The Observatory said an extra 700 pro-government militia fighters had arrived at the front as reinforcements to join the operation.

The UN Human Rights Council on Monday ordered investigators to examine the latest violence in the enclave.

The Human Rights Council on Monday adopted a resolution proposed by Britain in a 29-4 vote.

He appealed for a sustainable solution to the security situation in eastern Ghouta so that more aid could be brought in.

"We have been looking at aerial bombardments for quite a while now, that the Russian air force as well as the Syrian air force have been involved in where there have been heavy civilian casualties", said panel member Hanny Megally.

The Russian military has appealed to militants in East Ghouta to allow civilians flee the area.
