36 Photos to Remind You How Beautiful Syria Is

This winter marks the third in the Syrian civil war, which has resulted in a death toll of over 120,000, while millions of others have been forced to flee their homes. The regime of Bashar Al-Assad – who this summer flirted with international military intervention after being accused of using chemical weapons against civilians – has clung to power despite staunch opposition from “rebel” forces.

While Syrians are war-weary and parts of the country have been ravaged by fighting, hope for stability remains. Take a break from the bleak headlines and take a look at these photos from around the country for a reminder of Syria’s breathtaking beauty.
