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.

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.
