This Week in Syria, Deeply

Dear Deeply Readers, This week our stories ranged from a look at The Relationship Between Russia and Syria to a view of the War from Syria’s Wine Country. As the sectarian dimension of the conflict grows thick, spurring even more intense acts of brutality, our weekly Social Media Buzz examined the role of Hezbollah + the Shadow of Sunni-Shiite Battle. On a similar theme, we shared an item from prominent blogger Elliot Higgins, known online as Brown Moses, chronicling how Three Men in Raqqa Were Executed in retaliation for the Banias massacre – killings believed to have targeted Sunni families. Previewing a wave of humanitarian concerns, Dina Sharokhi shared how After Winter’s Chill Come Fears of Summer Heat -- early warnings that a lack of clean water, steady power, and basic sanitation could lead to a public health catastrophe. UNHCR’s Reem Alsalem shared perspectives on Egypt and Syrian Refugees: It’s Complicated. In a crossposting from Clarissa Ward of CBS News, we shared the story of Young Brides' Dreams Crushed Among Syrian Civil War. This week we’re proud to share that our Executive Editor, Lara Setrakian, was named as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, on behalf of Syria Deeply. As always, to help you review, here’s our day-by-day roundup of Syria headlines this week: Monday: Syria Troops Take Control of Strategic Highway Linking Damascus to Jordan; Turkish Tensions Rise Over Car Bombings Tuesday: Opposition Warns of Danger to Qusayr; Gruesome Video of Syrian Rebel Pinpoints Western Dilemma; Putin, Netanyahu Meet to Discuss Syria Wednesday: Rebels Launch Assault on Aleppo Prison; Syria’s Internet Down for Second
