The Russian defense ministry has declared a humanitarian pause in Syria's Eastern Ghouta to let civilians leave the area. The residents, however, did not manage to leave as terrorists including those with the al-Nusra group forced them to stay by targeting some of them and threatening others. Zahraa al-Derzi has a report from eastern Ghouta.
