Idlib

Conflict & Justice

Fleeing into the fields, a family runs from Idlib attacks

There are some of the 180,000 people who have escaped an upsurge in violence in the last major Syrian rebel stronghold in the last few weeks. It marks the most intense escalation between President Bashar al-Assad and his rebel enemies since last summer, with dozens killed in the shelling of insurgent territory.

Shades of Serbian massacres in Syrian violence

In the 1990s, thousands were massacred in the provinces of the former Yugoslavia. It took years, really, for the international community to intervene and stop the killing. Now some are worried the situation in Syria may devolve into that sort of mass killing -- if it hasn't already.
