Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that his patience with militant attacks is not indefinite as terrorist groups stationed in the Damascus suburbs continue to shell the capital indiscriminately while the USA representative at United Nations has accused Russia and Syrian of violating ceasefire.

The eastern suburbs, a cluster of several towns and villages on Damascus' eastern edge, have faced a brutal onslaught over a number of weeks by Syrian government troops, backed by Russian Federation.

TASS cited Zolotukhin as saying that rebels were continuing to shell the evacuation corridor from eastern Ghouta.

"The armed groups are failing the humanitarian operation", he said.

Instead, the experts said, air attacks, including barrel bombs, have rained on Syrian soil and there were reports of the use of chlorine gas on civilians.

The Syrian regime has accused the Islamist and jihadist groups inside Ghouta of sabotaging the initiative by shelling the designated humanitarian corridors to hold civilians as human shields. "It could be extended but why go on if there are no results", he said.

"They are asking civilians to leave eastern Ghouta on the false premise that they can then attack anyone left in the area as much as they would like". We will continue uploading to you to feel guilty. "Of course not", he said.

The UN Security Council was due to meet Wednesday afternoon to discuss the humanitarian situation and hear from UN aid chief Mark Lowcock.

"When will your resolution be implemented?" he asked.

Since late February, Assad regime, Russian Federation and Iran-backed militia have intensified their attacks on the enclave, killing over 600 civilians as of Wednesday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The thickly populated region of eastern Ghouta which is an agricultural area located in the outskirts of Damascus is home to 400,000 people.

"More bombing, more fighting, more death, more destruction", United Nations humanitarian affairs chief Mark Lowcock said at a meeting.

The Observatory said air strikes and artillery fire on the enclave stopped just before the "pause" kicked in again Wednesday, but on the ground the clashes continued around Hosh al-Zawahira and Shaifuniyeh.

Feltman acknowledged that Resolution 2401 did not apply to operations against militant groups such as the Islamic State, al-Qaida and al-Nusra Front, which are trying to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad.
