Worsening war in Syria

After the backing of Russia and China and massive support of Iran and Hizbollah, Bashar al-Assad has gotten the license to kill innocent people. A British doctor who was on humanitarian mission in Aleppo and detained by Assad forces lost his life after 13 months of detention and brutal torture.

According to the media, when the regime forced dropped barrel bombs in Aleppo, more than 200 civilians lost their lives in miserable conditions. Unfortunately, instead of saving the lives of 10 million women, the world community is more interested in destructing Assad’s chemical weapons. US Secretary of State John Kerry said that he was pleased with the cooperation of the Syrian government and was now working with Russia to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons. It seems true that Assad regime is using chemical weapons issue to extend its rule with the help of Russia and Iran.

According to the UN, more than 100,000 people have lost their lives during the last two years of Syrian conflict. Due to the heavy use of air power, destruction is very high and several areas, large buildings have turned to rubble. Thousand women and children have also lost their lives due to heavy fighting in urban areas. Due to fierce gun battle and the use of heavy weapons, 3 million people, most of them are women and children, have been forced to leave their homes and migrate to neighboring countries Jordon, Turkey and Lebanon. Many are now living in refugee camps without any necessities. The UN needs US$6 billion for reconstruction and the rehabilitation of migrated people. Lebanon is facing internal division between pro and rival Assad groups. Several people have lost their lives due to heavy fighting inside Lebanon and several residential areas have also been targeted.
