After the protesters gathered outside the United Nations offices in the Jordanian capital of Amman on the continued airstrikes and shelling on eastern Ghouta in Syria in which nearly 500 were killed, including many women and children, the United Nation Security Council unanimously approved a resolution on February 24 demanding a 30-day cease-fire across Syria to deliver humanitarian aid to millions and evacuate the critically ill and wounded. There is no set time for the cease-fire to take effect, but the resolution demands that it be followed immediately by access for humanitarian convoys and medical teams to evacuate the critically ill and wounded.
