Syria’s envoy to the U-N office in Geneva has defended the Syrian army’s operation in Eastern Ghouta, saying the offensive is only targeting terrorists.
Hussam Edin Aala said the Syrian government is committed to a daily humanitarian truce. Aala said Damascus has opened safe humanitarian corridors for civilians trapped in Eastern Ghouta. He said the terrorists groups holed up in the region continue to indiscriminately shell Damascus. The Syrian diplomat made the comments during a U-N Human Rights Council meeting in the Swiss capital.
