Syria failing to meet ceasefire conditions

Syria (MNN) ― Syria and the United Nations finally agreed on the framework for observers monitoring a shaky ceasefire.
The three-month mission will be to monitor the cessation of hostilities that began on April 12 and the implementation of the Annan plan.

Since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's regime erupted in March 2011, more than 11,000 people have been killed, with more than 120 dying since the truce came into force.

In what was optimistically called an "Arab Spring," some changes did occur. Certain laws restricting the people were lifted. However, as protests continued, the Syrian government responded with military force resulting in thousands being killed and tens of thousands being displaced from their homes.

Many fled for camps along the borders of Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon.

As a result, Operation Mobilization says people are struggling to feed their families. Shops can barely keep any products in stock because many roads are blocked. In addition, thousands of Syrians are fleeing into Turkey or camping on the Syrian side of the border.

In the midst of this destruction, communities of Syrian believers are on the frontlines of bringing help and hope to their own people, according to Operation Mobilization. These followers of Jesus are reaching out to those who are starving and hurting by providing food packets and sharing God's love.

$75 will provide a food packet which will feed an extended family for one month. None know what the next few years will hold for Syria and its people, but they do know that the Arab world is crying out for something new. Please consider how you can help.
