This is what Aleppo is

Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson made it clear that he has no idea what the city of Aleppo is, which is rather problematic for someone who is running for president. The former governor of New Mexico was asked Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” what he’d do about the catastrophic situation in the besieged Syrian city. “What is Aleppo?” he responded. Well, Gary, this is what Aleppo is 1. Primary Arena In The Battle For Syria The government of Syrian President Bashar al Assad has been battling rebel groups since 2012 for control of what was once Syria’s largest city and its business hub. None of the international attempts to put in place “cessation of hostilities” agreements have worked, mainly because Russia continues to support the Assad regime with airstrikes. The city is under constant fire. “Death provides a relief for those civilians living here,” aid worker Rami Adham told The Huffington Post earlier this year. “I’ve numerous times people congratulating each other on the loss of certain relatives.” A photo of 5 ­year ­old Omran Daqneesh, covered in blood and dust following a bombing in Aleppo, went viral several weeks ago due to its raw depiction of the suffering residents face day in and day out. 2. Millions Of Displaced People Constant streams of airstrikes and a total lack of food, shelter and medical supplies have turned Aleppo into a totally uninhabitable place. For those civilians who survive the strikes, they’re often required to leave their homes in search of relative safety. Sometimes, military attacks have displaced upwards of 25,000 people in one night. People are forced to move into unstable displaced persons camps, joining the ranks of almost 7 million internally displaced Syrians. The other likely outcome is fleeing elsewhere. Almost 5 million Syrian refugees have already tried to seek safety in countries like Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, and across Europe. 3. Zero Humanitarian Aid The fighting in Aleppo is so intense that all types of humanitarian assistance, ...

Can Turkey Assimilate Its Refugees?

The neighborhood of Bağlariçi is some six miles north of Ankara’s city center. Like most of its suburban quarters, its apartment blocks and high streets are neither distinct nor very old. Superficially, the neighborhood is a testament to the city’s rapid growth over the last decade. Recent events, however, have shown that Bağlariçi is emblematic of a profound new trend ...
