In recent months we have been flooded with harrowing images of localised and regional attacks, violence and or retaliation. We must tread very carefully here lest we be regarded as insensitive to this age old war that dates as far back as Biblical times. We shall call them violent attacks when bomb shells are dropped on innocent children and mothers, while they are within the comfort of their own homes. But when bomb shells are dropped on strategic supply zones of this raging silent war these are attacks. But then this further makes the other side angry and they go on to retaliate and attack the other side, where it hurts the most: women and children. Thus a vicious cycle of bloody attacks plagues the region. This conflict has polarised nations and communities way beyond the origin of the conflict.
