Seven years on, no end in sight to war in Syria

The number of people killed in Syria is rising, despite the approval of "de-escalation" zones that were meant to reduce the violence.

    This week, March 15, marks seven years since the start of Syria's war.

    The conflict has displaced millions of people and led to one of the worst humanitarian crisis in recent history.

    Those who are still in Syria, are dealing with a rise in violence and civilian deaths.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
