Violence is escalating in Syria; Assad Regime is the reason behind?

Despite the Syrian regime escalating tensions across Idlib and Daraa, experts do not expect a large-scale operation against opposition forces.

The Bashar al Assad regime and Russian forces have escalated tensions across Syria by attacking Idlib, the country’s last opposition stronghold, and also Daraa, a city famous for being the birthplace of the 2011 uprising.

The Assad regime constantly violates the ceasefire. Right now, it targets the Idlib region, attacking opposition forces in order to provoke them to return fire to regime forces. The regime clearly aims to create a security nightmare for civilians living in Idlib, seeking a moment of desperation when they can give up their resistance against Damascus.

Despite increasing its territorial control, the regime is not able to control more than 60 percent of Syria.
