There is Terror of Human Rights in Syria

Numerous and serious human rights violations were reported by the United Nations to happen during the Syrian civil war. The war was reported by the United Nations as that kind of war devoid of compliance to the norms set by the international law, leading to sufferings of civilians that cannot be measured as a result of warring parties.

Human rights violations were said to be committed by both the rebels and the government, which according to the human rights organizations and the United Nations, were widely committed by the government of Syria.

The regime of Assad was said to use chemical weapons like the chlorine gas to the civilians, aside from the torture being conducted and extrajudicial killings. Not only was Assad accused of aerial bombardment and shelling that were not discriminating and were not proportionate, the regime spread terror because of its mass civilian casualties. The Free Syrian Army and other rebel groups were also accused of committing war crimes like the recruitment of children to become soldiers, civilian populated areas being shelled, the use of poison gas, and murder of members of religious minorities and taking hostages.

It is a painful fact that most of us have heard and seen, that in Syria’s 3rd year of conflict, many atrocities are unimaginable, from aerial attacks to civilians, physical assaults and rape on women, and so on, that made news to cover about the situation in Syria.

Other heartbreaking facts revealed about the conditions in Syria, including schools, houses, hospitals, water systems and large areas of cities crumbled to the ground, leaving 80,000 Syrians to have been killed among which were thousands of children.

Imagine a refugee camp in Lebanon during the months of winter, with the surroundings covered with snow and people are trying to get warm by going inside boxes and covering themselves with little cloth, and eyes of despair from children staring at you.

You will hear from women how they lost in just matters of seconds their homes, their lives, careers and practically everything. Women telling how they lost their brothers, husbands and sons in this Syrian war, and how they were traumatized because they were being raped. Peace and nothing else are what these women could wish for, leaving behind their careers and their past happy and peaceful lives.

It is a fact that Syria and Iran considered themselves as strategic allies that they have to support each other. According to some sources, Iran has given aid to the Syrian government during the Syrian civil war since 20111, through the Iranian revolutionary guard that increased and strengthened the ability of Syria in dealing with protesters, aside from the riot control equipment that they sent and givng techniques to monitor intelligence.
