No more excuses

The Violations Documentation Center in Syria now lists over 50 individual civilians killed by Assad air attacks since the US-led Coalition began operations in Syria.

Regime attacks seemed at first to be dropping, but Reuters now report an increase as Assad forces adapt to the new circumstances.

Allowing Assad to carry on bombing civilians at the very same time as the US-led Coalition is militarily active in Syria is untenable.

No more excuses.
Stop the barrel bombs.
Syria needs a No-Fly Zone.
