The United Nations Human Rights Council was on Friday due to hold a debate on Syria's Eastern Ghouta enclave, where bombardments by the Syrian government and its allies are continuing despite a UN security Council resolution on 24 February demanding a 30-day ceasefire.

Introducing the proposal, the United Kingdom called on the Council to act swiftly to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Eastern Ghouta, referring to the situation in Syria as one of the most prolific slaughter houses of modern time, the UN body said.

A total of 1,389 people were killed in Syria last month, of them 67 percent in rebel-held Eastern Ghouta, according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights.

A total of 1,073 people who died in fighting were civilians, the group said.
