Civilian Abuses during the Syrian Civil War
The ongoing civil war in Syria is enough statement of the importance of peace in the world; otherwise people have the ability to finish another because of foolish reasons. The armed conflict in Syria began during the Arab spring protest that shook North Africa and parts of the Middle East. The bad thing is that war has not stopped in Syria since 2011. No person would have foreseen the war lasting so many years and claiming hundred of thousands of innocent lives. The Syrian civil war has claimed over 500,000 people so far.
The Syrian civil war is between the National government of Syria and rebels. The war is complicated because both sides are supported by different nations. As the war claims more lives, no person can predict when the Syrian war will come to and end. People in the world are crying the hearts out for peace to prevail in Syria.
More than 500,000 thousand civilians in Syria have died because of the civil war. Millions have also been injured in the armed conflict. The situation has also left millions of people displaced, while those lucky enough have been able to escape Syria to seek asylum in other countries. It is quite depressing to find out the number of people affected by the Syrian civil war. The Assad regime has killed hundreds of thousands in the war. The regime that is led by Assad has also used chemical weapons (chlorine gas) causing death to thousands of people. On the other hand, the rebels have also caused mass murders in the conflict. In a nutshell, some of international regulations of war have been broken in Syria. Kids and women has been severely injured in the Syrian conflict.
Other than the number of deaths and injuries in the Syrian war, numerous aid agencies have repeatedly been blocked from reaching the people that need aid the most. By blocking these suppliers, the situation is Syria is dire because the injured cannot access urgent medical aid they badly need, while the internally displaced persons have been denied food supplies many times.
Millions of people all over Syria risk starving to death because of this conflict. Women have also been raped in masses as result of this conflict.
No end to fighting
Despite several peace initiatives conducted by the Arab league and the United Nations, the Syrian war is still continuing. The Assad regime has refused to sit on the negotiation table saying they are not ready to talk with armed terrorist groups. The Syrian war shows no signs of ending presently. World leaders must act quickly to stop the war because people are already suffered too much.
