Syrian civil war has no end in sight

While diplomatic efforts to end the civil war in Syria continue without success, the war rages on several fronts. Elements of the Free Syrian Army have targeted military outposts and airfields, mostly in the Northern parts of the country. Government forces have bombarded suburbs in Damascus, with significant civilian casualties, to try to dislodge rebel elements . Recently, a bomb exploded at a university in Aleppo with many casualties. Meanwhile, Syrian refugees continue to lack sufficient shelter for coping with winter conditions. All travel to Syria should be avoided.
