Ongoing attacks by Syrian government forces and their allies has created “hell on Earth” for civilians stuck in a rebel-held Damascus suburb, the UN’s chief said on Monday, as air strikes and ground operations continued despite a days-old ceasefire.

The bombardment of rebel-held enclave over the past week has been one of the heaviest of Syria’s seven-year war, killing more than 550 people in eight days, according to a toll compiled by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based war monitor.

Al Jazeera’s David Chater reports from Geneva.

The key lies in who continues to fund the terrorist groups that have been the ones who have engineered this war from the start. Everybody really knows the UN. They are the same ones who continue to put chemical weapons in Syria.

If just a few countries launch cruise missiles into Assad regime airbases they could destroy his jets and almost eliminate his ability to murder civilians. It's past time to wring hands and complain, only concrete action will stop the terrorist and war criminal Bashar Assad.

Assad is pushing out the Saudi backed terrorists, and then NATO called a ceasefire!

Aditya Iswarabhawa says:

"The responsibility for the continuation of so much pain, lies with 5 of the permanent members of the UN security council, so long as the vetoes is used by them to block any unity of action when it is needed the most where it could reduce the extreme suffering of innocent people, then it is they the permanent members who must answer before the victim"

That is actually quite a blunt speech, but true indeed, though is the permanent members really the one to be blame?

Irish 1916 says:

Al-Nusra and ISIS aren't in the ceasefire so it doesn't matter about the ceasefire. The government will do their duty and wipe out these terrorists
