Syria's Perpetual War - the Slaughter of Innocents

Many civilians, including scores of innocent children, continue to die across Syria in a war that simply appears perpetual to those suffering under the continuous assault bombings from the Bashar al-Assad regime, and his backer, Russia.

United Nations (UN) Human Rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, complained earlier today of the apparent international indifference to the persistent violence that continues to devour innocent civilians in northwest Syria. As reported by France24, the human rights chief remains concerned over the 103 civilians, including 23 children, killed in regime bombings in the last 10-days. 

Citing deadly attacks upon schools, hospitals, markets and bakeries around Idlib, the last remaining rebel hold out, in Syria, Bachelet remarked: "These are civilian objects, and it seems highly unlikely, given the persistent pattern of such attacks, that they are all being hit by accident." Some 630 civilians have died in the last three-months at the hands of the Syrian regime and its Russian cohort, many via air strikes.

Since March, 2011, the Syrian war, in its seeming perpetuity, has ravaged the people of Syria. Yet, Bashar al-Assad remains in power in Damascus with Russian support upon the spent lives of hundreds of thousands civilians, including thousands of children. Millions of Syrians have been permanently displaced and many dispersed to the shores of Europe, thus exacerbating social and political troubles on the continent. An agreement in September, 2018, between Turkey and Russia to establish a demilitarized zone in northern Syria, has not prevented the ongoing slaughter of civilians in the Levant.

And apparently, the international community continues to be impotent to relieving the pain and suffering of Syria's people. Therefore, Syria's peace must be demanded, won and maintained by Syrians.
