For several years now, civilians in Eastern Ghouta and many other areas in Syria have been living under stringent military siege imposed by the Syrian regime and its allies. Civilians, civilian objects, services, and facilities have been indiscriminately and intentionally targeted by the Regime forces, causing among other difficulties a critical shortage of food, medical supplies, medicines, and basic living necessities and services. Following the recent escalation against the towns and villages of Eastern Ghouta on February, hundreds of thousands of civilians, including 115,000 children have been forced to flee to residential basements, many of which lack the very basic means of life. Due to constant and targeted heavy shelling, it is now impossible for any of those civilians to leave the basements in order to seek food or other necessities for themselves and their families.
