A deadly explosion at an evacuation point killed more than 100 people, including children, government supporters and opposition fighters. The blast happened in the al-Rashideen area. A number of vehicles caught fire due to the blast.

Since no one claimed the responsibility of the blast, government media and the opposition exchanged accusations pointing to conspiracies undermining the transfer deal.

Why. Just one after another, incidents are happening in Syria and 50 plus people are killed everytime. What is this? What can anyone accomplish from killing children?

Just in 2011, President Bashar Assad’s rule reduced the residents of Madaya and Zabadani to hunting rodents and eating tree leaves. Photos of children gaunt with hunger shocked the world. And Russia supports this government? What the Hell.

The Syrian rebels ask for ceasefire

In the recent events, the pressure of the Syrian army has forced the rebels to ask for a ceasefire in the city of Aleppo, Syria’s most populous city before the war. However, Syria and Russia, supporting Syria in this war, said that they won’t hold a ceasefire unless all the rebels leave Aleppo.

The ceasefire is supposed to be able to let the civilians and the wounded evacuate from the city, however there was no mention about the thousands of rebel soldier leaving the city. The Syrian army, along with the allied forces have made rapid and important gains over the rebels, especially in the last two week period, and rebels have been put under pressure. Residents told that the war is overwhelming where no one can rest for even a mere five minutes. If anyone is seen on the street, that street is soon shelled by the army. Normal civilians are struggling for food and water supplies.

The war in Syria has already killed hundreds of housands of people and has made even more number of people homeless. The refugee crisis in Syria has been the biggest yet in the world. Russia and the USA discussed on the cessation of hostilities in Aleppo, so as to make way for humanitarian aid in the region.
