The civilians of the war-ravaged town of Ghouta in Eastern Syria are pleading for worldwide attention after the pro-government forces backed by Russian Federation, pounded the city in a relentless offensive that reportedly killed more than 250 people in the past 48 hours, according to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Pro-government forces fired rockets and dropped barrel bombs from helicopters on the towns and villages of the rural district just outside Damascus, where rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad have their last big redoubt near the capital, it added.
Some 400,000 people are "living in hell on earth", Guterres said during his address to UN Security Council ministerial briefing on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter in the maintenance of global peace and security.

According to her, "wounded victims are dying only because they can not be treated in time".
Syrian state TV later reported live from the streets of Damascus to show what it called the people's "steadfastness" despite the shelling. "There is no food, no markets", he said.
Meanwhile, the International Committee of the Red Cross has asked for access to eastern Ghouta, where 1,400 people have been wounded. This is madness and it has to stop.
The Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisations, a group of foreign agencies that fund hospitals in opposition-held parts of Syria, said eight medical facilities in eastern Ghouta had been attacked on Tuesday.
Russian Federation has waged an air campaign in support of Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces since September 2015. They also deny using the inaccurate explosive barrel bombs dropped from helicopters whose use has been condemned by the United Nations.

Al-Watan newspaper, which is close to the government, said the bombing campaign "comes ahead of a vast operation on Ghouta, which may start on the ground at any moment".
