Syria's new emerging wars

ABU DHABI (SYNDICATION BUREAU) - The idea that the Syrian conflict was "winding down" was so widely believed that even sober-thinking analysts found it difficult to challenge. But what a difference a week can make. The war, instead, has reached a new peak. Within the space of a mere few days, Syrian rebels shot down a Russian jet, Kurdish fighters downed a Turkish helicopter and pro-government groups attacked United States-backed forces. Meanwhile, the US killed tens of pro-Assad fighters and over a dozen Russian citizens, the Syrian army shot down an Israeli F-16 and Israel downed an Iranian drone and launched its largest air strikes on Syria in decades. All that happened against the background of intensive regime attacks on opposition pockets in Ghouta and Idlib, which led to the death of an estimated 1,000 civilians in one week alone. No, war in Syria is far from winding down; instead, the last week has demonstrated how it has become a lot more complicated.

Syria's army launched a new deadly aerial campaign on Damascus's rebel-held Eastern Ghouta region on February 18, with daily bombardments since then turning it into "hell on Earth". The enclave, controlled by Islamists and besieged by government forces for five years, was already subjected to a ferocious five-day air assault this month that left around 250 civilians dead and hundreds wounded. The new round of strikes by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad has killed more than 360 civilians and wounded 1,700 others since Sunday.
