Tens Of Thousands Flee To Closed Borders Begging For Safety


CNN is reporting that nearly 200 people have been killed in a Syrian government strike against Islamist fighters and rebels in the country's southwest region. The offensive has forced tens of thousands of people to flee toward the closed borders with Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. According to activists around 120,000 people have been displaced by the Russian-backed Syrian regime's offensive to take Daraa province. Syria is wresting control from the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army, as well as terror groups ISIS and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham.Jordan and Israel are providing aid to the displaced but are refusing to allow Syrian refugees inside their countries.
