What's the actual human cost of the war in Syria? | Inside Story



Half a million dead, 12 million displaced, during 10 years of fighting.

The country’s been torn into rival areas controlled by different groups, backed by regional or international players.
And it’s now facing a surge in COVID-19 cases, an economic crisis and U.S. sanctions targeting the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

  1. They act like Assad is some cartoon character villain. People don’t do that in real life. Nobody wants to harm their own people. The people who are harming the Syrians are the ones who support evil sanctions, which i believe is the most evil forms of warfare in existence. Essentially it’s someone saying, “bend the knee or your people will starve by the millions”.

  2. Let’s all remember who started this crisis: Bashar al Assad.
    He was too afraid and fragile to let his people peacefully protest against him, so he started murdering the civilans. As the protestors (majority of Syrians) started to organize in resistance groups to defend themselves from the regime brutality, Assad freed Islamist prisoners for them to interfere and challenge the moderate opposition, so that the moderates started to have two enemies, making it harder for them to challenge SAA. All this is Assad’s own fault, and it’s a shame that the real Syrian people has to suffer 😢
    I hope for peace in Syria 🇸🇾🕊

  3. The US holds a pretty good hand. By patronising the Kurdish militias in the east, they have created a buffer between Iraq and Syria, they occupy some oil wells and, most importantly, they control almost all of Syrias fresh water supplies; ensuring the prepetual instability of the Assad regime. Food prices will skyrocket as the country needs to import food without the ability to exchange USD due to sanctions.
    Assad should have gone yesterday.

  4. The Financial Times reported that Qatar had funded the Syrian rebellion by at least $1 billion and "as much as $3 billion" over the first two years of the civil war.[1] It reported that Qatar was offering refugee packages of about $50,000 a year to defectors and family.[1]

    The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute estimated that Qatar had fueled the war by delivering more weapons to Syria than any other country. In total, there were over 15 weapons cargo flights into Turkey between April 2012 and March 2013.[1][2]

    Qatar operates a training base for rebels in its territory, in conjunction with U.S. military forces who ran the training, training about 1,200 rebels a year in three week courses.[3][4]

    Qatar has provided support to rebel groups across the spectrum and has received criticism for not only funding more moderate rebels but also a coalition known as the Army of Conquest, which contains al-Qaeda linked groups.[5]
