Bashar Assad Attacking Innocent Civilians To Deflect Attention From Main Issue

Bashar Assad Attacking Innocent Civilians To Deflect Attention From Main Issue

In a desperate bid to retain power, Syrian President Bashar Assad is busy launching attacks on civilian and enemy lines alike while he is allegedly waging a civil war against rebel forces in his country. The recent spate of violence signals a shift in the direction of the war being waged against rebel forces that have made the Idlib province their stronghold.

 

The Syrian government is having a lot of problems in getting hold of the situation against the rebels in their stronghold. It is getting quite difficult to counter the enemy in Idlib.

 

 The forces can not seem to differentiate between civilians and rebels. They have killed nearly two dozens civilians in their attempt to thwart rebel forces.

 

Syria's border with Jordan came under the scanner when Nasib crossing on the border was attacked by militants associated with the Al Qaeda in April. Nasib crossing was an important stronghold with the Assad regime till it was captured by rebels.

 

The advance of rebels is still under way with their uninterrupted march into Latakia province. Fatigue caused by continuous vigil is being attributed to the knack of rebels. Moreover, there are obvious defects in the way Assad is leading the government which is why rebels want him out of power. There is support from Syria's minority communities like Alawite community in this context.

 

Support from the international community for the Assad regime is also coming down. Support from governments of Iran and Russia has been ebbing in the recent past partly owing to their involvement in domestic scuffles. If the potency of the Assad regime withers with time, it is going to be good news for the US. Drawing Assad to the negotiating-table to end the civil war is going to be  easier.
