“Today marks one thousand days since Syrians first took to the streets in large numbers calling for political and economic freedom. Instead of responding to their calls, the Syrian Government resorted to brutal violence. As a result, over 100,000 lives have been lost and more than 8.5 million people have been forced to flee their homes, 2 million of whom have become refugees. 9.3 million people are in need of and dependent on humanitarian aid. This is the biggest humanitarian catastrophe of this century.

The people of Syria want and deserve peace, but this will only come if they achieve freedom and dignity. This is why the Geneva II peace process starting in January is vital. A negotiated political transition in Syria is the only way to end the conflict, address its root causes and alleviate Syria’s humanitarian crisis. That clearly means that Assad, who has presided over this deepening conflict, cannot be part of Syria’s future.” (UK Foreign Secretary William Hague from the Press Release on “Foreign Secretary Marks 1000 days of Syria Crisis” on GOV.UK)

The British Foreign Secretary is currently in Oman.  This is what he tweeted just over 4 hours ago:

William Hague ‏@WilliamJHague4h “In Muscat to meet the Sultan of Oman and Ministers. Talks on #Iran and the region. The UK and Oman have a deep and lasting friendship.”
100,000 lives!!!!!!!  Enough is enough!  Let’s pray that something is done SOON to end this bloodshed!
