Syria - General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Here we can discuss the current civil war in Syria, post news etc. 

 

here is SOHR's (as for now it's the most reliable source) estimate of casualties. The only thing that is suspicious is unlikely high regime casualties and a strange overrepresentation of men among killed civilians. 

 

 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented 110,371 casualties since the beginning of the uprisings in 18/3/2011, from the first casualty in Dera'a, up till 31/08/2013.

Civilians: 40,146. Including 5,833 children and 3,905 women.

Rebel fighters: 15,992.

Defected soldiers and officers: 2,128.

Regular soldiers and officers: 27,654.

Unidentified casualties (documented by pictures and footages): 2,726.

Rebel fighters (most of which are non-Syrian and others are unidentified): 3,730.

Popular defence committees, National defence forces, Shabiha and pro-regime informers: 17,824.

Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah: 171.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- The death toll does not include more than 9,000 detainees and missing persons inside regime prisons and detention centres. Nor does it include more than 3,500 regular soldiers and officers held captives by rebel fighters.

- We also estimate the real number of casualties from regular forces and rebel fighters to be twice the number documented, because both sides are discreet about the human losses caused by clashes.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Death toll for August 2013: 5,493 were killed in Syria.

Civilians: 3,109. Including 124 of which were tortured to death in regime prisons, 365 children and 348 women.

Rebel fighters: 1,140.

Regular soldiers: 1,186.

Non-Syrian and unidentified rebel fighters (most of which are non-Syrian): 700.

Defected soldiers and officers: 42.

National Defence forces and popular defence committees: 386.

Unidentified casualties: 70.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Given this massive number of casualties and these tragic human losses, who are not solely numbers but are lives horribly lost. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights calls upon the UN security-general Mr. Ban Kimoon and the international community to exert all effort on ending the ongoing violence in Syria, to aid the Syrian people on establishing a democratic, civil, just and equal country and to maintain the rights of all Syrian components.

We go after Syria then Iran & Russia get involved. Turkey nor Saudi Arabia or israel is going to want Russia or Iran in their homeland. Retaliation will occur. Assuming we do what we want and send our msg there is still an unaddressed issue whch is that one of the rebel groups is Al Qaeda and if Assad falls these psychos will take over, unquestionably

If Syria is attacked there will be a dual strike; Russia will attack Saudi Arabia and Iran will attack israel. If Saudi Arabia is taken out it will crush the American economy and America has long stated its support for israel.

 

If Obama goes through with this it'll be bad for everyone.

Both won't happen. No one would be fool enough to openly attack the most powerful military alliance in the history of the world - not even Iran. Iran has been saying similiar things for years, and Russia simply lacks means to project power outside of maybe a few ex-soviet countries.

Following the increasing human rights violations that have been commited by the ISIS in recent times, the SOHR will publish the biggest and most important of these, since its establishment in April 2013 to show what has been done by this organization to the people of Syria, as the SOHR refuses to conceal any kind of crime or violation, regardless of which side has committed it.



Doctors in contact with the SOHR have confirmed that the ISIS are responsible for killing the young activist and doctor - Mohammed al-Abyad - following his abduction early Monday morning from his workplace in the village of Sajo in the northern province (Reef) of Aleppo, while his corpse was found on that monday evening on the road leading to the town of Deir Jamaal, not far away from where he was abducted.



2 days earlier the ISIS have executed the opposition poet Mohammed Hamadeh from the city of Kafarzeita in the province (Reef) of Hama, after he had went to one of their headquarters in the province of Idlib to enquire about his son who had been missing for months. According to activists, there had been a heated argument between the poet and some ISIS fighters, leading to one of the ISIS fighters to fire two bullets, one on his head and the other on his chest, leading to his death.



Also, the ISIS had bombed a Masjid in the city of al-Shadaadi in Reef al-Hasaka, which is regularly attended by Shiite citizens, in spite of other locals asking them to turn it into a cultural and educational centre instead.



The ISIS continues to abduct hundreds of citizens amongst them media activists, and the prominent Syrian opposition figure and Lawyer - Abdullah al-Khaleel - and Christian clerics such as Father Paolo Dall'oglio, who has a very prominent supporter of the Syrian Revolution, and Bishop Paolos Yaziji - Aleppo's Roman Orthodox Bishop - and Bishop Youhna (John) Ibrahim - Aleppo's Syriac Orthodox Bishop. Their unites have also killed in June of this year Father Franco Murad in Deir al-Ghassaniya near Jisr il-Shughoor in Reef Idlib. Furthermore, they have clashed with fighting family members of al-Jaadir - whom the late defected Colonel Yousif al-Jaadir - belongs to, he had successfully led the operation of regaining control over al-Mushaah school in Aleppo last year which was under regime control. The ISIS have also killed two men near the village of Douweirina according to activists in late August last year, on charges of them being agents for the Assad regime with no fair trial. They have detained nearly 30 Kurdish citizens in the town of Qabasseen in the eastern province (Reef) of Aleppo, and videotaped them - in a video that the SOHR has obtained - saying that they end all affiliation with the "blasphemous" PKK party, and joining Islam. ISIS units have also bombed one of the headquarters of the brigade of "the prophets ascendants" near Mahattat al-Qitaar neighborhood in the city of al-Raqqa using a car planted with explosives, followed by besieging their headquarters leading to clashes between the two sides ending in several deaths.



The ISIS had bombed several homes of Kurds in the city of Tal Abyad in the district of al-Raqqa, on the grounds of them belonging to the Kurdish front Battalion or Unit of protection of the Kurdish people (YPG), and have blown up the headquarter of the Kurdish democratic community, as well as attacking several Kurdish areas and abducting hundreds of Kurdish citizens in Reef A'frin and Tal Abyad. This July, the ISIS have executed the leader of an FSA brigade in the town of al-Dana in Reef Idlib, following clashes between the brigade and ISIS fighters after ISIS fighters have opened fire on protests against ISIS practices. ISIS have also opened live fire on the leader of a rebel Battalion in Latakia after the ISIS have attempted to remove checkpoints put there by the battalion.



The ISIS have also executed the child Mohammed al-Qitaa' last June, who was selling coffee under claims that he has cursed the prophet Mohammed, and have seized a factory in Aleppo due to the fact that its owners were of the Christian religion.


This is only a small and minor example of the violations that have been taking place by the ISIS on Syrian grounds, which are opposed to the concept of human rights, and contradict the goals of the Syrian Revolution.

This man not only violates basic human rights but Quranic laws & sunna of the prophet. I do believe killing Assad would be a righteous act regardless of which context you take that word
