Eleven years to the Syria Conflict

March 15 is indeed the Ides of Mars in Syria. Mars, the God of War, descended on Syria on this date eleven years ago and has never left, though he is also busy in Ukraine and other places. For all of this time of a decade plus a year, Bashar Assad managed to cling to power, helped first by Hezbollah and Iran and since 2015 by Russia, too. Earlier this month, representatives of the United States, the UN and Arab and European countries called once again for a ceasefire, humanitarian measures to alleviate suffering, war crimes proceedings and above all a political power-sharing settlement, but there seems to be little progress, as Bashar and his sponsors insist on purging remaining pockets of resistance to the regime. Where do the various actors, including Israel, stand as they mark this sad anniversary?

Guests Colonel (Reserve) Dr. Anan Wahabi, Senior Fellow at ICT Reichman University and Lecturer at Haifa University, Major General (Res) Gershon Ha-Cohen, IDF Army Corps Commander and Amir Oren, TV7 Editor at Large, Host of TV7 Watchmen Talk & Powers in Play.
