The present growth in militarism represents only the most recent deterioration of the situation of the Syrian people who have had to contend with ever increasing suffering as a result of a brutal conflict that has continued to deepen for nearly four years. As a result, more than 191,000 are dead and millions more are displaced within Syria or are refugees in neighboring countries and beyond.

“We’re disappointed that diplomatic efforts and the political engagement of many countries is not leading to a negotiated settlement of the conflict,” said Andrea Lari, JRS Advocacy Advisor.

“JRS believes that the fighting parties should be brought together — with a wide range of observers and facilitators, including countries in the region and those countries outside the region with a geopolitical stake in the conflict — sitting around the sametable and hammering out steps to suspend the fighting, rebuild the country and stop the conflict all together.” Learn more: jrsusa.org
