The war in Syria has raged for four years and the suffering is greater than ever. UN and and the Security Council has received massive criticism for its efforts to improve the situation for the victims of the war. Despite promises and resolutions even more dies, and even fewer gets help.
A genocide of Christians in the region is happening and not much can illustrate the genocide better than these images, showing how the genocide is unfolding, as the war goes on the lights goes out.
Aid organizations have done an analysis and found that 83 percent of all light in Syria has gone out. The satellite pictures are taken by researchers at Wuhan University in China between 2011 and 2015, and published in cooperation with #withSyria, consisting of 130 independent organizations.
- It is now four years since the crisis began. The Syrian people have been thrown into the dark. In despair, fear and grief over friends who are lost, and the land they once loved, says David Miliband, from the International Rescue Committee.
Satellite images are often the most unbiased way to show the negative trend. The images are taken 800 km above the Earth.
- In the worst-affected areas, as Aleppo, 97 percent of the lights has gone out. In the capital Damascus located near the Israeli border, 35 percent of the light has died.
Remember how the mainstream media cheered on the brutal jihadists when it all started, calling them "rebels" and even "freedom fighters".
Yes, it's a sad fact that they are dead wrong most of the time, following orders from corrupt politicians with wrong agendas. Sad.
