The Humanitarian Tragedy of the Innocent Victims of 'Winging' Warfare

A four-year-old Syrian girl, who had spent most of her too short life as a child refugee in Turkey, was killed by Russian bombs in Syrian, in October. The sad death of this tendered heart, underscores the humanitarian tragedy of innocent victims, who fall to the wrath of 'winging' warfare, in order to prop up the failed Bashar al Assad regime.

Displaced through war from Syria into Turkey soon after her birth, 4-year-old Raghad, according an Associated Press(AP)  report, was making her first visit, accompanied by her mother, to her grandmother's home in Habeet, Idlib province, Syria, on October 1, when she was struck down with deadly skull damage from the bombs of Vladimir Putin's forces. She died along with her grandfather and another relative.

According to the AP report citing figures by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, in one month of bombings in Syria, Russian forces have killed 185 civilians including 46 women and 48 children. In contrast, Russian forces have killed a mere 131 Islamic State(IS) fighters, while Syrian rebel forces have suffered the most under Russia's bombs with 279 reportedly killed. In comparison, the 13-month United States(US) led Coalition targeting the IS in Syria, has killed 3,726 IS fighters at a rate of 252-a-month with an unfortunate 225 civilian casualties.

Moreover, since Putin unleashed his forces in Syria, another 120,000 Syrians have been displaced in October alone, thus underscoring the need for an end to the Syrian war so as to prevent wider humanitarian tragedies such as the deaths of more polka-dot-dress wearing infants, like Raghad.
