Justice for Syria

Bringing peace to war-ravaged Syrians needs a multipronged response.

Srinivas Burra writes:

The killing of civilians on 7 April, in an alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government, has led to the building of momentum to begin another round of military strikes against the Bashar al-Assad-led government by the United States (US) and its allies. This is one of the incidents in which hundreds of thousands were killed or injured in a conflict that has entered its eighth year. The humanitarian consequences of this conflict are enormous. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), since it began in 2011, more than 5.4 million people have fled Syria, taking shelter as refugees in different countries. In addition, 6.1 million people are internally displaced and large numbers of people are trapped in the middle of the conflict in different parts of the country.
