More Deaths Recorded in the Seemingly Perpetual Suffering of Syria's Children

Syrian government forces of Bashar al Assad continue to bombard the sieged enclave of Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus, where yesterday, another 20-children died in a group of 100 people from an escalation of the war. This recent onslaught horrifies the seemingly perpetual suffering of Syria's children as the conflict approaches its seventh-year, next month, with no end in sight.

Hence more children will die and will continue to suffer as the international community remains impotent to ending the ongoing blemish to humanity and modern civility. Some 20,000 children are among the hundred of thousands of people killed thus far in the conflict. An additional five-million people have fled Syria. 

Eastern Ghouta, an agricultural area, located about nine-miles east of the Syrian capital, Damascus, has been under siege since 2013. It is a rebel-held enclave totally surrounded by Syrian government forces and territory. 

Whatever geopolitical game is being played out in Syria is witnessing a fresh assault by Assad's forces as they continue to pound Eastern Ghouta and other Syrian towns this morning. The BBC-News just reported that Assad's forces have now also entered a border Kurdish-held enclave, thus risking a possible showdown with Turkish forces already operating against the Kurds in the said region.

Unfortunately, deaths of children and civilians stand to increase as the perpetual suffering of Syria's children continues in lieu of any real concerted efforts to end the conflict that will enter its seventh-year, next month. 

May God have mercy on all the children. Amen!
