WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES OF WAR.
The civil war ravaging Syria began on March of 2011 as peaceful protesters took to the streets demanding social and economic reforms, and an end to corruption. The response to these demonstrations over the months to come, were brutal. Many protesters were shot on several occasions in an attempt to disperse the crowds and curve their morale. These measures only helped to embolden the mostly sunni civilian population - armed militias began to attack government checkpoints in the countryside as the movement spread throughout the country. Twenty seven months later, the country is now in the midst of a bloody civil war that has claimed well over 70,000 people. As international negotiations for a cease-fire continue to fail, innocent civilians (caught in the middle of this war), continue to be killed or displaced by aerial bombardments, artillery and sniper fire.
