What’s happening in Syria: Recent developments


With Syria facing bombardments from many sides, I wonder why the rescue response from other leaders of the world is delayed or have they woken up now. Everyone waits for the attack to happen and then they wake up showing immense concern and empathy towards the innocent people of Syria. While some are staunch supporters of the dominating powers while others have criticized the attack.

The world superpower US seems to be on a high ride in pouncing on Syria and has publicized that it will not step back till its mission in Syria is achieved.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said, “[It is our goal] to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things,” Haley said on Fox News on Sunday.”

Haley further reported that US is making new sanctions on Russia for its consistent support to the Syrian President Bashar-al Assad. These sanctions will be declared on Monday by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Haley precluded one on one interaction of US with the Syrian President.

Further support came from France wherein French President Emmanuel Macron said, “We convinced him it was necessary to remain there. We have complete international legitimacy to act in this framework”

Russia has however termed these allegations as an art of fabrication carried against it.


The latest report from US White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is that: “The U.S. mission has not changed — the President has been clear that he wants U.S. forces to come home as quickly as possible.”

Meanwhile, The Arab League had called on Sunday for an international probe into the deadly use of chemical weapons in Syria and it also convicted Iran of their interference in the internal affairs of other countries. There has been a cold wave between Saudi and Iran for decades for proving their supremacy over one another.

Saudi and its allies are in support of the missile attacks collaboratively carried by US, France and UK whereas Iraq and Lebanon stood against this strike.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that these attacks by the western powers would lead to international chaos.

In a phone conversation on Sunday, the two leaders agreed that “this illegal action seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in Syria,” Russian news agency RIA quoted the Kremlin press service as saying.

In the midst of proving their worth, innocent Syrians remain to be the crushers. These involve Old people, youth, and kids.
