Featured Article: โ€œ800,000 Syrians Have Fled in Three Months. This Is What It Looks Like.โ€

The Syrian government, backed by Russian forces, has accelerated its monthslong offensive to seize control of Idlib, the last province held by the opposition. Facing heavy bombardment of towns and villages, more than 800,000 people, mostly women and children, have fled their homes since December, joining the largest exodus of Syriaโ€™s civil war since it began nine years ago.

The exodus is the largest of a war that has displaced 13 million people and taken hundreds of thousands of lives, and ranks among the largest in recent history, second only to the flight of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar in 2017.

Turkey, already host to more than three million Syrian refugees, has closed its border with Syria since 2015 to prevent a further influx. That has left the displaced people of Idlib trapped between advancing Syrian and Russian troops and the Turkish border.

YOUR ASSIGNMENT:

1) Analyze and respond to a photo or video.

Look at the photos and videos featured in the article: What do you notice about them? What questions do they raise? What story do they tell about the crisis in Syria and its displaced people and refugees? Which photo or video do you find most interesting, surprising or memorable?

Choose one image and write about how it illustrates the challenges, courage and resilience of the Syrian refugees.
