In only 7 months in Syria, 2000 people have been killed from the US-led international coalition in the north of the country. Among these there are 66 civilians and 10 children. The etimates came from the NGO National Observatory for human rights (Ondus). The victims stand at precisely 2078. Most of them, specifically1922, were Jihadists of Isis, especially foreigners. The 90 killed were militants of the Antakya, the Syrian branch of Al Qaida.
The situation in the country is extremely worrying, with the civil war which is now in its fourth year and has already resulted in the deaths of 200 thousand people, the advance of the Islami State has interwoven into the country. The provinces of Al Hasakah and Raqqah have passed under the control of the Caliphate and that is where in July 2013, the Roman Jesuit father Paolo Dall’Oglio, has vanished. Meanwhile to the south, on the border with the Golan mountains occupied by Israel, clashes against Islamist groups and the opposition Antakya, are continuing, while Iranian advisers and Shiite Lebanese Hezbollah militia are supporting loyalist forces.
In early April, President Bashar al-Assad, in an interview with Charlie Rose on Cbs, said that since the start of US bombing in Syria, the number of militia-men of Isis has increased. “American raids in some cases can bring local benefits but the Islamic State on the whole has grown been on the increase since the beginning of the attacks. Recruitment figures are higher and some estimates speak of about 1,000 people who are enrolled per month in our country.They are growing in Iraq, in Libya, and other affiliated organizations of al-Qaida who has announced their allegiance to Isis “.
