The country has been tormented by civil war.
Innocent civilians, especially children, are being killed in large numbers during government airstrikes and bombardments and the retaliation by the jihadist militant groups. Millions of citizens have fled Syria to neighbouring Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Canada they noted.
The crisis was caused by the US, which wanted to display its imperialistic hegemony. The media should highlight the plight of children displaced and orphaned during the civil war so that help reaches them, they said.
