Syria uprising

In A
In B

More than a year after protesters took to the streets of Damascus and Daraa, unrest in Syria shows no signs of ending. Thousands of people have been reported dead as President Bashar al-Assad’s regime continues to crackdown on anti-government protesters. As Syrian rebels continue to battle Assad’s forces, the international community has been trying to push for a U.N. Security Council resolution that would compel Assad to step down and pave the way for a transitional government, but so far, all efforts have failed.
