Syrian Refugees' Plight

Save The Children have released a harrowing video in which the plight of Syrian refugees is re-imagined as if similar things were to occur in England.

Currently Syria is in the throes of a cataclysmic civil war that has been ongoing since 2011.

It was started after the regime engaged in a campaign of violence and repression against an initially peaceful protest movement. The regime provoked sectarian tensions in order to tear the protesters' unity apart. This repression provoked an armed insurgency to arise in response.

Many Syrians strive to retain the remnants of their society and protect themselves and their loved ones despite the severe turmoil.

Outsiders such as Al Qaeda and ISIL took advantage of the chaos and result power vacuum to set up shop in war torn Syria and export their extremism among a vulnerable people.

The Syrian people need and deserve peace. May peace soon come to Syria.
