Probably the constant violations of human rights is a fact accompanied with the strategy of Assad and his allies who have lost the international validity as they get up to the mark with that methodological brutality against the weakest creatures regarding the elderly, women and children so that these deeds are up to considered war crimes for which they must be punished someday when the international community breaks its usual utter silence calling for international retribution.
Bombardment has been resumed again only after few hours of cease fire, in which civilians in besieged Aleppo hoped to flee the bloody death there. It is a brutal death for being connected with the power of iron and fire, in addition to the fierce escalation pursuing the policy of “stick” by all the sides supporting Assad regime whether the raciest militias, Iran or Russia which has change the scale of power on the Syrian field.
Although the civilians and the wounded in besieged districts in Aleppo have prepared themselves to be evacuated after regime pushes closer and closer to them trapping them in tens besieged Kilometers that are left and held by opposition in eastern Aleppo. The Iranian ally has put the spoke in the wheel stopping the Russian agreement considering the evacuation, in order to force a deal prepared outside Syria, where Assad becomes known as the weakest element among his allies regarding policy. Assad’s superficial and constant power in his tenure is linked to the power of his allies on ground; Assad’s agreement is only a matter of form, since he is not the decision maker.
Certainly, with no question, the Russian ally’s political and military support is the thing which has made Assad regime remain in power for years in the conflict taking place in Syria.
So that Iran works hard on adding extra conditions allowing the wounded in Foa’a and Kfarya towns in Idlib countryside evacuate, and demands to release the captures taken by opposition forces. With Iran obstruction in the agreement, the question to Syrians becomes so clear.
Where is Assad regime power between Russia achieving its criminal goals on one hand and Iran obstruction on the other hand; or has it fallen with the first intervention by the allies in shedding blood of the countrymen?
Offensive is resumed bringing along again panic to civilians who has gotten out to the streets waiting for evacuation, where they have again to return and hide from the shelling with grieve filling their broken hearts.
“Which guarantees and what safety”, the expressions said by a besieged person in Aleppo while he was getting back to a dark basement with quick steps, he proceeded in mockery:” they said there would be safe corridors and guarantees for civilians evacuation.. ah..ah we should not doubt for a second that a regime which has been murdering our people just to remain in power, will not be honest regarding civilians safety”.
