The recent Syrian turmoil has been resulting in death of thousands of innocent people each week, which brings back the memories of the genocidal mass slaughter of 1994, known as the Rwandan Genocide. While the rate of killings has been going up drastically with each passing day, the number of people fleeing every day is also causing a great anxiety to the United Nations officials, says the report.
Five Thousands are Being Killed in a Month
A shocking disclosure regarding the death toll shows that a huge number of common people are being killed every month in the civil war of Syria.
According to the figure revealed by the U.N. officials, about 5,000 Syrians are being exterminated in a month and it has been going on. In addition, more or less 6,000 refugees are running away every single day.
The number of death has already crossed 93,000, while more than 1.8 million people have been reported to run off since the commencement of the conflict. It is enough to get an idea about the extreme deterioration of the inconsistent situation.
It is Reminiscent of the Rwandan Genocide
As per the report revealed by the U.N. officials, such turmoil in Syria is more or less similar to the Rwandan Genocide that took numerous lives in the year 1994.
20 years ago, a mass murder took place in the East African state Rwanda in which around 1,000,000 innocent people were slaughtered in a period of more than 3 months. After that, no other war has resulted into such a huge number of murder and terrifying rate of refugee outflow, says Antonio Guterres, the U.N. Refugee Chief.
In a recent interview, Ivan Simonovic, the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, has stated that the situation in Syria has become so critical that the infringements of human rights, war transgressions and sins against humankind have turned into the rule.
Something like 6.8 million people in Syria are now in a need of insistent ‘humanitarian assistance’, says Valerie Amos, the United Nationas Humanitarian Chief. She also pointed the finger at the administration as well as the opposition claiming that they have failed to provide enough protection to the civilians methodically and in lots of cases intentionally.
However, it is a provincial catastrophe rather than a disaster with regional upshots. Hence, a persistent and broad engagement is highly necessary from the worldwide community in order to stop it without delay.
