Global Refugee Crisis: The Worst Sinc...
Beirut

11 Jun 2015

June 20 is World Refugee Day.

In 2014, global refugee numbers were higher than they have ever been since World War II. In 2015, the problem has only gotten worse.

There are currently over 50 million refugees in the world and more than %50 of them are children. Approximately half of the world's refugees are from just three countries: Afghanistan, Syria, and Somalia.

The response to this massive international crisis has been limited, with most refugee aid programs desperately underfunded. Amnesty International has called the lack of robust international response "A Conspiracy of Neglect." With little help on the way, the future of the world's displaced remains uncertain.

It took them two weeks to reach Adjumani, Uganda. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) flew them from Jongelei state to Juba and then put them on a bus to Uganda.

Thousand of South Sudanese from this region became internally displaced refugees in Jonglei and Juba following the outbreak of fighting between forces loyal to South Sudan president Salvar Kiir and his ex-vice president Rick Machar in December 2013. The following is an interview with Wal Garang Dhiek, 42 and his wife Ayen Nhial Piel, 25: Please describe your current situation and the reasons for it. Mr. Dhiek: Life was good prior to the crisis but currently it is not as good. We used to have eight cows and twelve goats; all were stolen by the rebels. The children depended upon the milk from the cows. What is the hardest? Mrs. Piel: Illness is the hardest. The children fall sick and there is no money to see a doctor; they must recover at home. Currently both the baby and my husband's mother are sick. We think the baby may have malaria. His mother is having problems with her back. How has the conflict and the violence affected you and your family? Mr. Dhiek: We had to travel far to seek safety; we fled to Mathinag Island and stayed for three months. We suffered hunger and our barn was burned. The rebels killed my brother who was a soldier. What are your biggest needs at the moment? Mrs. Piel: We need help with the sickness. We can't afford money for medicine. The children need more nutritious food; there's no substitute for the lack of milk. Our main diet is sorghum. Photo by Ric Francis)

Golan heights: Syrian Rebels Show off...
By Abdu al-Fadel
01 Sep 2014

September 1, 2014
Quneitra, Golan, Syria

Opposition Fighters from the Rebels of Syria Brigade show off captured UN and Syrian Army Posts in the Golan. Footage gives an inside look at the captured posts, which are about 2km away from Israeli Army positions on the Golan Heights. When fighters from another militia, Jabhat al-Nusra, captured the UN post they apprehended 40 UN peacekeepers stationed at the position. Footage shows UN equipment and close and wide shots of the area.

Translation:

Young fighter, Rebels of Syria Brigade:

"Grace is to God the Almighty the “truthful promise” battle.

When we first started the incursion it was from this side and we pressed on until the (regime) army detected our presence here. That was when we engaged them from our location near that barbed wire. The skirmishes continued as we pressed forward. The big battle took place when we got here and the liberation of this checkpoint began."

Military commander Abu Raed from the Rebels of Syria front:

"The 'truthful promise' fight is just the beginning. After the liberation of this checkpoint we will press on toward the capital Damascus to liberate it from the vile regime and the cursed Shia who support it (regime) and fight along side of it."

Reporter: Is the entire checkpoint and crossing being held by rebels now?

Abu Raed: "Yes, the entire crossing is rebel held thanks to the strength of almighty god and the heroic efforts of the Mujahadin, who have given their lives for God to accomplish this great deed."

Reporter: What about the rest of the stages of the operation?

Abu Raed: "The stages were the crossing itself, the city of Quneitra and Hamidiya and these are all held by the rebels now."
