The Emaciating Soul of Humanity

starving_children_syria.jpg

Syrians went through all kinds of death. From explosive bullets, to knives and machetes, to machine guns and Shilka, to MIG warplane raids, to drones, to Chemical Weapons, to white phosphorus, to ballistic missiles, to TNT barrels full of metal garbage, and now a starvation war.

In the middle of all this abundance in many parts of the world, there are people starving to death in other parts. Now Syrians in besieged areas are deliberately starved by a regime that is protected by the criminal international community. Every day another poor Syrian soul choose to end the agony of an emaciating body and depart. I don’t believe that people starve from lack of sources, people starve because of wars and human cruelty.

The besiege by the Syrian regime must stop. Adding insult into injury, war lords are making things worse by benefiting from the savagery of Assad’s crimes. United Nations is giving the aid to the Syrian regime, which is a mad approach by an organization supposed to be neutral in wars, not playing stupid then reward a criminal killing his people with any sick method imagined by a psycho mind. Of course the aid will not reach those who need it. We were calling for humanitarian corridors for a long time, but it seems that the decision was made to pervert our souls and vision of the world by allowing massacres to continue.

Not everyone might have access or ability to donate, but at least keep the conversation and anger raging. The starved Syrians are another fact of the emaciating soul of humanity.

Just keep the anger raging, for the poor who are paying the price.

Just keep the anger raging...

Hummingbird, thank you so much for highlighting the starving issue coming up recently in several areas of Syria especially in Yarmuk camp for Palestinians refugees where more than 45 people have died after fighting hunger for long months.
Thanx God it worked out finally and UN could deliver aids and food to there ; 300 parcels as a first batch.
People of Syria are looking forward to getting more for Yarmuk and the rest trapped areas.
Mercy upon them alive or dead; Syrians who're fighting strongly to keep existing in this crazy war!

I don't know

There are about 20 thousand people in Yarmouk Camp only, let alone other besieged and starved areas. What i learnt yesterday that the regime only allowed 75 parcels in! I don't know how many parcels is enough and for how long, but the tragedy is beyond any numbers.
I agree, so many brave Syrians are fighting to keep existing in this war.

A drop of rain can revive the earth, be the drop.
