Syrian Civil War
By Mohammad Alshereda // August 12, 2020
Nine years have passed by since the Syrian civil uprising that started in 2011 and nothing positive has been accomplished by the Syrian people.
Everything that was recorded is about 500,000 people killed (including women and children) and more than 5 million people became refugees.
Today, about 12 million people in Syria need humanitarian help. According to UNHCR: Zaatari refugee camp has about 76,000 refugees, 20% of which are children under the age of 5 years old.
The devastation can be clearly seen in Aleppo as it became a war ground.
The Syrian uprising started conflict between 2 sides: The Syrian Government versus The Syrian opposition. Now, it is a conflict between four camps:
• Syrian government (Alawites) led by Bashar al-Assad.
• Syrian opposition (Sunnis) forming the Interim Government.
• ISIL (formerly ISIS) supported by Al-Qaeda.
• Rojava which represents Syrian Democratic Forces.
The situation in Syria is obviously getting worse by the day and a lot of countries are involved. It is more like a time bomb that can go off at any moment.
The Syrian uprising has brought more harm than good and if you ask any rational Syrian, they’d say that it would have been better if it did not happen at all. One unified country under the rule of a dictator is much better than a country torn into 4 pieces.
It is very clear that al-Assad is not going down without a fight. That only means more death and bloodshed. In my opinion, the Syrian people should unite and think about what is good for them and their country if the application of peace is what they truly want. Peace is made by the purity of hearts not by the sounds of guns.
My message to the Syrian people:
“The war in your country must stop for the sake of every Syrian. Your women and children are suffering from your irrational actions. The country you call your own will cease to exist if you insist on your way of thinking. Save your people and save Syria in order to save your future.”
