Syria’s status quo still troubled and persistent
The Syrian regime, which has been waging a costly war against its own people for more than 11 years, and Russian forces have gradually escalated tensions in the northern Syrian province of Idlib. The very location is the war-torn country’s last opposition stronghold where around 3 million people are stuck.
Turkey, Assad’s forces’ off-and-on attacks and Moscow’s airstrikes have killed hundreds of civilians, including many children. The regime has once again shown its obsession with Idlib, which it needs to declare its victory.
The regime’s well-documented evidence of torture, rape and extreme humanitarian violence directly linked to the Syrian butcher Assad. This was clearly shown in the Caesar Report involving 900,000 government files that were released in 2014 and which revealed almost 55,000 photographs of bodies of the detainees who horrifically died in the regime’s detention centers.
