New York, MINA – UN Security Council is due to hold an urgent session tomorrow Monday to discuss attacks on Eastern Ghouta, Syria, following a joint request by nine members including Kuwait, KUNA reported, citing diplomats Sunday.

Kuwait, France, the US, Britain, Sweden, Netherlands, Poland, Peru and Cote d’Iviore requested for an urgent UNSC session, the diplomats said, in the wake of bombardment against Eastern Ghouta in general and the town of Douma in specific.

Kuwait joined the other UNSC members in calling for the urgent session out of its moral and humane responsibilities.

Kuwait had condemned attacks against populated areas in Eastern Ghouta and Douma using rockets and barrel bombs, which killed and injured scores of civilians.

The foreign ministry expressed concern over the large number of victims and reported choking cases among civilians, calling on the international community to investigate the attacks in compliance with UNSC resolution 2118. (T/RS5/RS1)
