Syria enters fifth year of bloody civil conflict

Syrians dig through the rubble of a building in search of survivors in the rebel-held area of Douma, east of the capital Damascus, following reported air strikes by regime forces on March 13, 2015Syria’s conflict enters its fifth year on Sunday with the regime emboldened by shifting international attention and a growing humanitarian crisis exacerbated by the rise of the Islamic State group. More than 210,000 people have been killed and half of the country’s population displaced, prompting rights groups to accuse the international community of “failing Syria”. The country has been carved up by government forces, jihadist groups, Kurdish fighters and the remaining non-extremist rebels. Diplomacy remains stalled, with two rounds of peace talks achieving no progress and even a proposal for a local ceasefire in Aleppo fizzling out.
