But for women and children in Syria, they are continuing to be targeted and reports of rape and execution of women in the country are quickly becoming daily.
According to one female activist, speaking to Bikyamasr.com on condition of anonymity from inside Syria, the media coverage of violence against women in the country is “less than the reality.”
She added that “women in Syria are being raped, often in front of their husbands, tortured and murdered by the government. It is a horrible thing to be a woman in this country.”
The United Nations has called on the government to allow women and children to leave cities under siege, but soldiers appear unwilling to acquiesce, instead raping and murdering women in the city and other areas of the country.
