Deadly airstrikes persisted Sunday in the Syrian rebel enclave of eastern Ghouta despite a United Nations Security Council resolution adopted Saturday that called for a 30-day cease-fire. Opposition activists reported fighting and two airstrikes in the region shortly after the UN adopted its resolution. “Eastern Ghouta cannot wait, it is high time to stop this hell on earth,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said. The unrest continued overnight, and at least 24 people died in the last 24 hours, according to the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
