The Week in Review: Rising Tensions in Syria

Inside Flipboard / August 30, 2013

Syria’s unstable and weak regime has created a two-year long turmoil, causing more than 100,000 casualties and hundreds of thousands more Syrian citizens to flee the country. This past week, things heated up in the international community over Syria’s suspected use of chemical weapons—which led to talks of a possible military intervention.
