After a decade of war, the plight of Syrian refugees is getting worse

Instead, there was nothing but havoc and chaos. “The Assad regime has killed those who demanded a peaceful transition to democracy,” CNN reporter Arwa Dimon wrote in a grim summary. Gulf states sent bags of cash with a wink and a nod to more religiously conservative fighting units. Al-Assad released the former al-Qaeda members and other criminals from prison. At the height of its engagement, the United States had lukewarmly trained some “moderate” rebels, and many of them joined the ranks of extremist groups. ”The Syrian conflict ended as a civil war with all intents and purposes. The insurgency still sits within a shrinking cordon of strongholds, mostly in the northwest of the country – and there, in large part, thanks to Turkish protection. In the northeast, it has found Kurdish-dominated militias that previously fought alongside a US-led coalition itself At times, both the regime, Turkey and its proxies are fighting, and the entry of Iran and Russia into geopolitical turmoil has inextricably upset the balance in favor of the regime.Al-Assad forces targeted civilian population centers with artillery and improvised explosive devices such as barrel bombs. Western powers have focused their efforts on fighting the brutal Islamic State group Despite the evaporation of the extremist group’s territorial fiefdoms, analysts warn that they will continue The chances of re-emergence, as the past decade has led to the shattering of the nation and the dispersion of its people. More than half of the population was forced to flee. The United Nations put the death toll in 2016 at 400,000. Six million Syrians fled their homeland, they fled across its borders to neighboring countries, ”my colleague Lise Sly wrote. Five million are still stranded, barely living in sub-standard conditions. One million people climbed onto flimsy boats to cross the Mediterranean to Europe .. Away from television cameras, tens of thousands of protesters have been systematically arrested and imprisoned in labor camps in Syria. Conditions are getting worse. A recent report by the United Nations refugee agency indicated that “poverty and food insecurity are increasing, enrollment rates and access to health care are shrinking, and the COVID-19 pandemic has eliminated much of the informal work that refugees depend on.” “People are on the verge of collapse,” Rola Amin, UNHCR’s chief communications advisor, told CBS News. While “the world’s attention has shifted from the Syrian crisis and people tend to think that it may have become easier, with each passing year, it becomes more difficult, and not easier for Syrian refugees.” In Syria and the neighboring countries that host the British medical journal The Lancet indicated that the largest part of the refugees, more than 23 million people need humanitarian assistance, adding that “the vast majority of Syrian refugees live below the poverty line.” The United Nations World Food Program estimates that about 12.4 million Syrians are now suffering from “food insecurity”, an increase of 4.5 million people from only last year, and there is no meaningful political solution in sight, despite years of efforts by a group of actors. International actors. Western governments imposed strict sanctions on the Syrian regime, but this did little to destabilize Assad’s authority and it could be said that it increased the pain of ordinary Syrian civilians. It is unclear how a torn and fractured country can come together again. “It is no longer a country, but a group of people in the same spot on earth,” one Syrian activist told the Los Angeles Times. Some opponents cling to hope. The price to join the revolution was not cheap. We have paid a heavy price and incurred huge losses. But we are not just victims. “We are survivors,” Hasna Issa, an activist arrested by the regime and now residing in the northwest of the country, told the Guardian. “We are raising the next generation in a different way than anything we could have imagined before.” Others live in deeper despair. Reporters from the news agency asked Ola Dawarashi, a 26-year-old refugee in Turkey, when she would consider returning to her war-torn home. She replied, “I don’t ask myself this question.” “I don’t even think about it.”
