Syria conflict: a civil war within a civil war?

The bloodbath continues in Syria, where 5,000 people are dying every month, according to the United Nations. As Bashar al-Assad tightens his grip on Syrian cities, the rebel movement is becoming more fractious with an escalating power struggle between moderates and hardline Islamists. Annette Young and her panel discuss whether foreign countries should arm the rebels and what happened to the Geneva conference.

  • William JORDAN  Former State Department official stationed in Damascus;
  • Oleg KOBTZEFF, Professor at the American University of Paris, Specialist in Russia and the geopolitics of the Mediterranean;
  • Martin CHULOV, The Guardian Middle East Correspondent;
  • Majid RAFIZADEH, Syrian Iranian Political Analyst and lecturer at Oxford University.
