The UN Economic and Social Commission for West Asia (ESCWA) considers that
the damages, the aftermath of the war against Syria, reach at least 388 000
million dollars. This figure was the figure announced during a conference
that took place in Beirut on 7 and 8 August 2018.

The ESCWA will shortly present its report entitled Syria, 7 years at war.

The US President, Donald Trump, considers that the conflict that took place
in Syria is a war of aggression organized by transnational financial
interests – such as the investment fund KKR, Toyota, the global leader of
Cement Lafarge, etc. Therefore it must be the transnationals involved and
the States that worked with them that have to pay the damages.
