Over the last week, bombing raids have continued across the outskirts of Aleppo and other regions in Syria.

Only yesterday a report said that approx. 440,000 people had returned to Aleppo to rebuild their lives amongst the rubble.

http://www.unhcr.org/uk/news/latest/2017/11/5a096a894/aleppo-returnees-assess-scale-rebuilding.html

In the last couple of hours, a bombing raid has attacked A market place outside Aleppo. Fatalities.
Not yet understood if it is the Syrian forces, or the Russians, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/dozens-reported-be-killed-air-strike-syrian-market-1386002471

Do you think it is a crime against humanity ? We don't get much coming out of Syria these days.

Touching knees by prominent people seems to be far more important. no

I keep an eye on what's happening from time to time, but it's truly heart breaking what is going on, out there . A life of fear for the children, many of whom are so damaged psychologically, according to children's charities, they may never recover fully.

Every bomb dropped is a crime, don't need words like humanity.

Dropping bombs on places you are not even at war with is ultimate sin, we criticise terrorists for the same, we (as a country) are terrorists.

Syrian forces are bombing their own people , accompanied by their mates the Russians. Neither of them are at war with Syria , just the rebel groups etc.
Imagine if the RAF bombed the Empire theatre in the middle of a performance ? People bombed whist shopping for food (not that there is much) ?

Syria has officially been in civil war since 2012.

Yes, and introduced by outsiders initially. I was told by a guy from Aleppo that the infiltrators first went into the countryside and created hate , animosity and fear with lies to gather the people together, then moved into the cities and did the same using the other side of the coin to have the same effect , so to speak. Then it all kicked off after the Arab Spring.

The Syrian people wanted Assad , and had never thought differently and christians and Muslims lived side by side on a near 50/50 basis, church next to mosque in the same street for years and years without any bother.

It's when I hear things like that, it's actually possible to see the same happening in any European country at the moment with the rise on the extremists. It doesn't take much to light a touch paper and there's a lot of hate around towards Muslims in general.

There's a lot of hate to non-muslims as well!

World needs a big RESET!

Unfortunately, all IS members are Muslim.

I have just seen the news report about the exodus of ISIS fighters out of Syria across the desert to Turkey. About 4,000 of them, that took about 4 hours to pass through villages with all their armory, driven by Syrians who didn't know what they were to be involved in. " The secret they don't want us to know".. Not sure who 'they' are but I read this the other day. reported on 7th November.

I know, I remember when it first was on RT or Al jezeera, my OH and I sat listening to the original talk of it ages ago and both being gobsmacked, and then we didnt know how many it actually was! (seems its happened more than the once) Couldnt believe or understand the justification for it ! OH had wanted the whole lot wiped out there and then while the opportunity presented itself and announced that in due course we would be sorry later if we didnt!

We know little.

Yesterday I found this article , another piece about the different groups. USA supporting 'freedom fighters' a diluted branch of Al Qaeda.

There again, if anyone is in that country, I imagine they would all have to fight and anything against IS would be a bonus.

The bit about the 'White Helmets' is also eye opening.

So the UK got any ground troops or ground operations in Syria? Looks like that is a lie!

UK just fund the White Helmets to do the dirty work, whom in most cases, aren't Syrians ! Quite a number of Egyptians and Turks.
