The Syrian Civil War and the Human Rights Violations
The war is Syria is proof that humans must learn to live in peace or perish together as fools. The Syrian civil war began in the year 2011 during a series of protest that swept over sections of North Africa and Middle East. The bad thing is that war has not stopped in Syria since 2011. Nobody predicted that this war would last this long and claim so many lives. More than 500,000 people have been killed because of the armed conflict in Syria.
The war in Syria is fought between two opposing factions namely the Syrian government or Assad regime Vs rebels. The armed conflict in Syria is quite complex due to the fact that the opposing sides are supported by a number of countries. 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.
The civil war in Syria has claimed above five hundred thousand people. Millions have also been injured in the armed conflict. Millions of displaced people are in camps in Syria but other have managed to escape the country. The number of deaths and injuries in this war are simply out of this world. The Syrian government is responsible for killing hundred of thousands of people. Chemical weapons such as chlorine gas has been used by the Assad regime. 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. Aside from murderers, lots of people including children have been injured badly in the 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.
Starvation is a serious threat to the life of many people in Syria because aid is being prevented from reaching it’s destination. The Syrian war has also caused many women to be raped. Lots of volunteer medical personnel from other countries have also been prevented from accessing the injured patients that need medication the most.
The Arab League of Nations and the UN have for a long time tried to end the conflict but have not succeeded. The Syrian government has resisted all attempts to negotiate with groups they term as terrorist. With no end in sight, the Syrian war will continue to claim more casualties. The prayer in the world over is for world leaders to unite in order to end the suffering and death of the Syrian people.
