More Than Half A Million Killed In Syrian War: Human Rights Monitor

More Than Half A Million Killed In Syrian War: Human Rights Monitor

Reports say at least 12 civilians died in airstrikes Sunday with more than 1,000 killed since the conflict began three weeks ago.

The advance on Mudeira, after the capture of the neighboring town of Mesraba on Saturday, has driven a wedge deep inside the insurgent territory, leaving the major towns of Douma and Harasta cut off. "I'm afraid that the more than 5,500 families are facing a potential genocide", added Hassoun.

"We have drafted a new ceasefire resolution that provides no room for evasion", U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in reference to Syrian army's operation against the terrorists in East Ghouta that keep launching attacks on Damascus despite the ongoing ceasefire.

The agreement would offer safe passage to rebels and civilians who wanted to leave and the town would come under government control.

USA ally Jordan is anxious about a possible breakdown in the truce and a major flareup in violence, which could send tens of thousands of refugees fleeing fighting in Deraa towards the safety of its northern borders, diplomats say.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia hit back at the United States and its allies for "doing nothing but constantly blaming the Syrian regime and putting demands on Russia".

Syrian government forces advance in the area bordering Damascus and Ghouta as heavy fighting in the region continues. The cellars were already packed before that.

"Right now we're getting reports - I don't have evidence that I can show you - but I'm aware of the reports of chlorine gas use", he said before arriving Sunday in Oman.

"What we are talking about is a preliminary agreement among the parties as a preconditon for sustained de-escalation in all hard areas of Syria, not only Eastern Ghouta", he said.

According to Hassoun, the situation in Harasta is becoming increasingly hard as hundreds of families are facing one of two options: remaining in their homes and underground refuges as air strikes target them or handing themselves over to government forces.

Mattis told reporters traveling with him to the Mideast that he was disturbed by reports of civilian casualties from bombings by Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces.

"Opposition fighters deployed on rooftops opened fire on the protest, which led to one civilian being killed and six wounded", he said.

"Either Russia is incompetent or in cahoots with Assad", Mattis said.

Douma residents said dozens of people were trapped alive under rubble, with rescuers unable to reach them due to the intensity of the raids.

People in Eastern Ghouta say they dread a similar fate.

Rebels have also fired rockets onto the capital.

The Observatory said on Monday that about 511,000 people had been killed since the Syrian war began.

Children are at more risk than ever in Syria's devastating conflict, the United Nations said Monday as the war approached its eighth year.
