Between eight and nine thousand killed in Syrian conflict

Share:

More than 8,000 people have died in Syria during a year of clashes between government security forces and opposition groups, according to a senior United Nations official. Opposition groups say the death toll is closer to 9,000

Many of the victims were women and children, said Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, president of the U.N. General Assembly.

“Violations of human rights are widespread and systematic,” Al-Nasser said.

Meanwhile, Russian deputy defence minister Anatoly Antonov on Tuesday said Moscow will continuing selling Syria arms.

He told reporters that Russia enjoys “good, strong military technical cooperation with Syria, and we see no reason to reconsider it,” the AP news agency reported.

US-based Human Rights Watch advocacy group on Tuesday published a report accusing Syria of planting mines near the borders with Lebanon and Turkey, destinations for refugees from the violence that broke out in March last year.

“The Syrian army should cease its use of antipersonnel landmines and recognize that planting this internationally banned weapon will hurt Syrians for years to come,” the report said.

    More death is promised by the extremists and their threat of extermination of various syrian sects.

      This madness and incitement of sectarianism have to STOP.  This sectarianism cancer must be eradicated, there are no winners in these conflicts but complete decimation to all. Where are the courageous people to speak out against this hideous practice. Silence is not the answer, where the Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mendalla and MLK’s of the world…

      God help us if those lunatics take charge.

      1. no pressure you are  very blessed to see the matter clear enough to make the comment you did, there  is no value whatsoever in playing this prepetual game of tid for a tad and i have to get them before they get me, all sects are guilty of having a strong desire to wipe out the other, the only ones i respect are the ones that  have had the experience and admit that their life was a waste due to biting on the bait of civil wars.

         i am very adament about not partaking in in this devil serving blood thirsty state of mind that prepetuates to no end, . the sadest part in reading many comments is that very few have feelings or compassion for those caught in the middle of this madness, they simply have so much hate for either sunnis or shiites that they accept the  blood of the innocent as collateral damage,, yet they have the gull to profess to be god fearing people. 99% of the players do not have the slightest believe that a god actually exists,,, their actions and words prove the lack of godliness in their heart.

      How can we embrace the future when we cann’t even forget the dark and bloody history. How much more blood  needs to be shed before we learn. I lived in Lebanon during the civil war and I can tell you, I don’t wish  for a second that a friend or a foe to go through that experience. War is hell, so we should not encourage others to go through it while we sit on the sidelines and watch.

    Russia should feel real proud of itself … the ‘chinless-twins’ have created themselves quite a legacy.  Do you think the Syrian people will remember them? (Both Russia AND the ‘chinless-twins’?)

      We need to stop blaming others for our problems and take responsibility for our actions as people and as governments. People need to show respect and tolerance even when they disagree because we have no choice but to live together. Enough of this nonsense going back into history and point fingers. Is this the future we wish to pass on to our children that we so dearly love, do we want them to fight the battles that none of us is able to win.

      The world is a sad place when I become the voice of reason.
