Now that another Christmas has passed, looking back at how Syrians lived through it returns a bleak image. One of Syrians caught up between the military conflict, the open prisons and the refugee camps. This image is, as every other aspect of the Syrian tragedy, depicted by Syrians through very graphic and intense forms of art.
Despite being military par excellence, Turkish presence has been widely welcomed by different segments of Syrian society in Idlib countryside and the Euphrates Shield areas, north of Aleppo. The reason for that being its contribution to improving the living condition of these areas, for the first time since the outbreak of the uprising in 2011.
