Syria: An Unending tragedy?

Posted on Updated on


The Syrian Civil War: How can a violent conflict even last this long?
    Its been three long years since Syria descended into a state of violence and the agony only intensifies for the civilian population.  140,000 people have been killed and an alarming 9.5 million (44% of Syria’s population) have been forced to flee their homes. Most of these people are internally displaced while about 2.5 million are ‘registered’ refugees in neighbouring countries like Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan. Syrian refugees now constitute 20% of Lebanon population!    The major concern now is the future of the Syrian children who have been seriously traumatized by this long civil war.
      In January, the UN requested $6.5bn from international donors. This was the largest humanitarian appeal ever. This highlights the extent of the tragedy in Syria.
    The Syrian war has taken so much twists and turns; including the ‘use of chemical weapons’ that drew massive international attention. We all just want the conflict to end. The pertinent question, however is: How is the war going to end? Will Assad actually be deposed or will he prevail against the opposition. Whatever way it ends, we can only hope that this seemingly unending conflict will put Syria on the path to recovery and stability.

      Yeah! Many people do want that to happen. The fall of Assad will be the beginning of a new Syria.
