  • ISIS into Deir Ezzor, Hundreds Killed

    The battle between ISIS and the Syrian government continue on in Deir Ezzor. The problem is that innocent lives are lost in this battle. Making that worse is that ISIS has the upper hand and has taken a number of districts in the city of Deir Ezzor. There were already lots of soldier's lives lost, but not only that, children are also affected by this battle. About 30 civilians were killed including 13 children.
    Fierce battles continue around the strategic city of Deir Ezzor in northern Syria between regime forces and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to human rights groups.

    What is sad is that the Syrian government and its army are completely inept in controlling this insurgency. ISIS don't have that many members, and they certainly don't have support, either from the population or from the powers surrounding it on all sides. But the callousness with which the main opposing forces are acting against them has made them into what they are at this moment.

      It's a shame that innocent lives have to be lost. It's also a shame that whenever acts of terrorism happen in third world countries, not matter what the extent of the damage was, it is not publicized and it goes unheard. The Paris attacks marked a huge day in the world and it was all over the media, yet when something like this, or worse happens in Africa, nobody hears of it and those lives are less "relevant."

      The local government's incompetency also plays a role in this, as UnslaadKrosis said, they are unable to control what is essentially a rather small army. You would think that the local authorities would at least be able to control the situation. But their lack of access to first world resources does play a role in making it difficult to fight against terrorism.
