The number of internally displaced people in Syria exceeds 7 million. The United Nations expects the number of Syrian refugees in neighboring counties to reach up to 4.1 million at the end of 2014. Such figures highlight the scale of the suffering of the Syrian people, and they surely mean one thing; there is no more a safe place in Syria.
Backed by its regional and international allies, the Assad regime sought to change the nature of the conflict in Syria by adopting a state policy of displacing people.
After more than 1000 days since the start of the Syrian Revolution, the Assad regime managed to succeed in creating the worst humanitarian crisis in a century.
Today as we mark the International Migrants Day, we reflect on the suffering of millions of Syrians who have lost their homes and lives. We ask the international community to step up efforts aimed at easing the plight of Syrian people and supporting their justified struggle for freedom, dignity, and a better future.
We ask for Mercy for our martyrs, health for our wounded, and freedom for our detainees.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
