Britain has announced sanctions on six allies of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, including his foreign Minister and close advisers.
The Syrian Civil War is ten years old in mid March, 2011, peaceful pro-democracy protests developed into a multi-sided conflict that sucked in world powers, killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions more.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the Assad regime has subjected the Syrian people to a decade of brutality for demanding peaceful reform.
Raab explained that they are holding six more individuals from the regime to account for their wholesale assault on the very citizens they should be protecting.
Those sanctioned include foreign minister, Faisal Miqdad, Assad adviser, Luna al-Shibi, Financier Yassar Ibrahim, businessman Muhammad Bara, Al-Qatiri, Republican Guard Commander, Malik Aliaa and army Major, Zaid Salah.
