Syria

Over five years of armed conflict in Syria has resulted in the loss of more than 400,000 Syrian lives, 6.3 million internally displaced persons, and 4.8 million seeking refuge in other countries. The Syrian crisis descended into civil war in 2011 when uprisings against President Assad’s repressive regime became violent. War crimes have been reportedly committed by all parties including murder, torture and rape. The situation is becoming increasing dangerous for civilians with 13.5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. While the UK government lacks leverage over most actors in the conflict, there are measures it can take to help. These include supporting the provision of urgent civilian protection, creating humanitarian access for those trapped inside the country, and encourage mediation between the warring sects.
