Syria: Mass Exodus Continues

The United Nations said tens of thousands of people have fled from Eastern Ghouta of Syria to escape the offensives of the Syrian government.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Russian air strikes on Friday killed 80 people including 14 children in Eastern Ghouta.

Meanwhile, in Afrin, where the Turkish forces launched offensives against the Kurdish fighters, more than 50,000 people have fled in a massive exodus.

In the Eastern Ghouta, more than 16,000 people have fled where the Russian forces have been supporting the Assad government to retake the city.

The Syrian ambassador to United Nations said the number of people who fled the Eastern Ghouta conflict could be much higher than the reported numbers.

The years-long Syrian civil war has left tens of thousands of people dead. According to the UN reports, more than 6.1 million Syrians have been internally whilst 5.6 million others have fled abroad.

The seven years long civil war, according to a UN report, has claimed more than 4 lacs people dead.

In the ongoing Syrian wars, multiple actors have been in action since the beginning. The anti-Assad forces have been intensely divided and engaged in fights against each other.

The Syrian wars turned deadly when the terrorist group ISIS emerged in the war-torn country to further devastate the Syrian lives.

According to the human rights groups, almost all the actors in the Syrian conflicts have been accused of killing civilians and using them as a shield.

The Syrian government, after three weeks of fights in Eastern Ghouta, has presumably captured one-third of the city.

To ensure a ‘lasting peace’ in Syria, three key foreign actors in Syria have met in Astana, Kazakhstan for talks.

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “millions of Syrians are looking in the direction of Astana.”
