HAMMURIA /Syria/, March 17. /TASS/. More than 30,000 people have left Eastern Ghouta on Saturday through the Hammuria checkpoint, a spokesman for the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria Vladimir Zolotukhin said.

"As of now more than 30,000 people have left, and people continue fleeing," he said.

On February 24, the UN Security Council approved Resolution 2401 demanding a 30-day ceasefire across Syria to allow aid access to the population. A daily five-hour humanitarian pause was introduced.

According to the Russian Center for Reconciliation, militants shelled the humanitarian corridor set up for civilians willing to exit from the enclave on first days of the pause, though later the situation in Eastern Ghouta substantially improved.
