This week we saw yet another atrocity in Syria. At least 58 people were killed in a suspected chemical weapons attack at a rebel-held town in Idlib province. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights report jets from the regime and Russia backers carried out the attacks.
Civilians, including children, choking in the street. Later, aircraft fired at local medical facilities caring for survivors. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have both highlighted the continued targeting of hospitals, as well as markets & schools, by Assad and Putin.
These two organisations, with the UN, catalogue repeated use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime and their Russian backers, alongside barrel bombing, denial of humanitarian aid, targeting of civilians, the use of torture and execution of opponents of the regime and their family members.
Back in 2013, The UN through the Security Council backed an agreement between Russia and the United States. Assad had to get rid of his chemical weapons by 2014 and that further breaches would bring consequences. Yet the atrocities continue.
Assad and Russia are not the only party involved in the awful things taking place in Syria. So called IS remain an evil organisation that needs to be defeated. The US-led coalition has also killed civilians as a result of its bombing raids. But what we are seeing from Assad and Putin are atrocities approaching the Eastern Front during World War Two. How much longer will the United Nations sit on its hands?
