As the Syrian conflict enters its 8th year, thousands of Syrians have been detained, injured, killed and forcibly displaced
Due to the intensive shelling by the Syrian government that targeted nearly everything on the ground, people of Ghouta were forced to move their lives completely underground in order to protect themselves in case of bombardments.
Syria is not just black or white, it is not either the Syrian regime or fighters. There are also civilians who are stuck in the middle, suffering silently the effects of this dreadful war that began 7 years ago and is still going on this very day.
In Eastern Ghouta, life has become extremely daunting and unbearable because the Syrian government imposed a tight siege that continued for over 5 years, blocking the entry of basic necessities and preventing people from getting into or out of the area.
