Three years on, the scale of the Syria crisis is still deepening, particularly as winter approaches, leaving relief agencies overstretched and struggling to cope with massive numbers of refugees. Oxfam is now helping half a million people affected by the Syria crisis across Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

War in Syria  This isn’t just “War in Syria”. This is the mass exodus of people from Yarmouk, a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus that has been under siege by the Assad government and military since 2013. Yarmouk, where ISIS is now trying to make theirs. That is the victim of barrel bombs launched by a brutal regime. Fuck you and your war porn. Taking a picture of thousands of people fleeing their homes and haphazardly describing it as “war in Syria”
