  • Es este,a mi criterio,uno de los más completos documentos que
    registran muerte y desolación,por una parte,e indiferencia de los
    poderosos por la otra.Puede la humanidad olvidar que Siria,siglos
    atrás,fue cuna de una de las civilizaciones más trascendentes de la
    region,al igual que otros pueblos que hoy viven la misma situación?
    Pareciera que sí,y aquellos poderosos que podrían detener este
    genocidio,se comportan como vampiros que se alimentan con la
    sangre de los miles de muertos en guerras civiles que del extranjero alientan para quedarse con el petróleo y demás bienes
    de quienes son sus verdaderos dueños.Vá muy mal el mundo así,
    y la estrechez mental de los que generan estas desgracias,no se
    dá cuenta que en algun momento el mal que provocan recaerá
    sobre ellos,pero será tarde.

  3. 3. Jan. 6 A Syrian refugee watches a television broadcast of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad speaking in Damascus, in their container at the AlZaatari refugee camp in the Jordanian city of Mafraq, near the border with Syria on Jan. 6. Assad made his first public appearance in months on Sunday, calling for a "full national mobilization" to fight against rebels he described as al Qaeda terrorists. (Majed Jaber/Reuters) # January 15, 2014 3
  4. 4. Jan. 8 January 15, 2014 A Syrian refugee removes water and mud around his tent, at Zaatari Syrian refugee camp, near the Syrian border in Mafraq, Jordan, on Jan. 8.

Police said seven aid workers were injured. (Mohammad Hannon/Associated Press) # 4
  5. 5. A Syrian refugee stands on top of a water tank at the Zaatari refugee camp, near the Syrian border in Mafraq, Jordan, on Jan 9. Tens of thousands of Syrians are flowing into Jordan a month, many with no money and resources. A significant number of women in the Zaatari camp, which houses some 120,000 refugees, fled with their children but not their husbands and have little or no source of income. (Mohammad Hannon/Associated Press) # Jan. 9 January 15, 2014 5
  6. 6. A Syrian refugee walks away after filling containers with clean water in the village of Kfarkahel, in the Koura district close to the northern city of Tripoli, Lebanon, on Jan. 9 as stormy weather sparked widespread flooding, prompting chaos on the roads and a nationwide school closure for the next two days. The number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon is already totaling 156,000, according to U.N. figures, and 200,000 according to the Lebanese government estimates.

  8. 8. Jan. 25 A newly arrived Syrian refugee receives aid and rations at Al Zaatri refugee camp in the Jordanian city of Mafraq, near the border with Syria on Jan. 25. The United Nations on Friday urged Syria's neighbors to keep open their borders to civilians fleeing the intensifying conflict and said that the refugee exodus into Jordan was "absolutely dramatic". More than 30,000 Syrians have arrived in Jordan's main Zaatri camp this year, including 4,400 on Thursday and another 2,000 overnight, it said. Most were fleeing fighting in the southern area of Deraa, food and fuel shortages and high prices. (Muhammad Hamed/Reuters) # January 15, 2014 8

  11. 11. Syrian children cry inside a tent at a refugee camp in the city of Tyre, in southern Lebanon on Jan. 31. The United Nations said on April 9 it will halt food aid to 400,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon next month unless it receives urgent new funding. The cash shortage is part of a wider financial shortfall that the organization says is threatening its efforts to help nearly 1.3 million Syrian refugees and almost 4 million more people displaced inside Syria by the two-year conflict.

Feb. 16 January 15, 2014 Syrian refugee women, wash their laundry in front of a Turkish military base, seen in the background, at Atmeh refugee camp in the northern Syrian province of Idlib, Syria, on Feb. 16. This rebel-controlled camp only yards from the border with Turkey houses some 16,000 people displaced by the civil war. But the U.N. and other major aid agencies best equipped to handle such a large-scale relief agency cannot reach them because they are inside Syria. That leaves the job to smaller organizations who can only provide a fraction of the needs. (Hussein Malla/Associated Press) # 13
