U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned Monday that Washington "remains prepared to act if we must," if the U.N. Security Council fails to act on Syria, as the Syrian army's onslaught in Eastern Ghouta continued unabated.The United States asked the Security Council to demand an immediate 30-day cease-fire in Damascus and rebel-held Eastern Ghouta, where the Syrian army's onslaught has killed around 1,160 people since Feb. 18 .Russia and Damascus say a cease-fire ordered by the U.N. Security Council does not protect the fighters in Eastern Ghouta, arguing that they are members of banned terrorist groups.Jaish al-Islam, one of Eastern Ghouta's main rebel groups, said Monday that it had reached an agreement with the government's ally Russia to evacuate wounded people, after communicating with Moscow through the United Nations.A U.N. humanitarian spokeswoman said the United Nations was not part of that deal and still called for the urgent evacuation of more than 1,000 sick and wounded people from Eastern Ghouta.
