Syria marks a decade of conflict with 400,000 dead and an open front

Beirut / On Monday marking a decade since the outbreak of the Syrian revolution and its subsequent outbreak in war, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates the human cost of the conflict at 400,000 dead.

The balance released on Sunday by the NGO records some 117,000 civilian casualties, the majority perished in actions of the forces loyal to Bashar al Assad.

The arrest of 15 teenagers for an anti-Assad graffiti in Deraa is often seen as the trigger for the March 2011 uprising.

The movement was born under the slogan “A Syria without tyranny”, a cry against the Al Assads, who then had four decades in power.

The center of the movement was a generation of young people born in the eighties and early nineties, they were in ferment since the arrival of the Internet in the 2000s.

By the summer of 2012, the concept of “liberated areas” emerged, those that escape the control of Damascus and receive support from international powers.

The northwestern province of Idlib is today the last major “liberated area”, completed by some parts of the west of the neighboring Aleppo region and other areas on the border with Turkey.
