Top UN officials have expressed concern about the human cost of the ongoing militancy in Syria.
So far over 210,000 people have reportedly died in Syria, which has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011.
Nearly four million Syrians have sought refuge in other countries, and 7.6 million civilians have been internally displaced since the beginning of the crisis.
In this edition of the Debate, we review the policies adopted by the US and its allies towards the Syrian crisis.
Press TV's guests, Kevin Barrett, an editor at Veterans Today from Madison, and Daniel Serwer, a professor at John Hopkins University from Washington, comment on the issue.
