Syria mar­ket atroc­ity shows bro­kers un­con­cerned with at­tacks

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - WORLD -

BEIRUT — One day af­ter a fe­ro­cious at­tack on a mar­ket in north­ern Syria killed more than 60 peo­ple, the col­lec­tive si­lence from the three ar­chi­tects of an agree­ment to ease the fight­ing in Syria has raised se­ri­ous ques­tions about their com­mit­ment to pro­tect civil­ians caught in the cross­fire of the coun­try’s dev­as­tat­ing civil war.

Tur­key, Rus­sia and Iran are the guar­an­tors of an agree­ment meant to freeze the lines of con­flict in Syria and pro­tect against the sort of hor­ror that be­fell mar­ket­go­ers in the town of Atareb on Mon­day.
