Car bomb targets Syria's ruling party headquarters, killing dozens
This article reports the car bombing occurred at the headquarters of Syria's ruling party that killed 53 people on last Thursday. The explosion wounded more than 230 people and most of the victims were civilians. The Syrian civil war is an ongoing armed conflict in Syria that began on March 2011. This conflict between the forces loyal to the Ba'ath Party and those seeking to oust it has been harshly criticized by global human rights organizations. Rights to free expression, or assembly were strictly banned in Syria. Women and ethnic minorities have faced discrimination in public services. This inequality is violation of the declaration of universal human rights, and it is very important for everyone outside of Syria to give more attention and aid the victims. The United Nation stated recently that the war's death toll has exceeded 70000. There have been many cases in the past where we neglected these massacres happening right in front of public's eyes. We promise to never let the horrible killings to happen again, but the effort to gain people's attention fails all the times.
