DAMASKUS – Banyak tradisi yang muncul saat Ramadhan. Di pinggiran Damaskus, di malam hari banyak keluarga berkumpul di sebidang tanah berumput yang berdebu di pinggir jalan raya.

Tradisi tersebut hidup kembali Ramadhan tahun ini meski perang sipil telah berlangsung sejak 2011. Piknik di pinggir jalan raya merupakan tradisi di Suriah. Perang tampaknya tidak menghalangi warga menikmati suasana Ramadhan.

“Saya terkejut dengan banyaknya keluarga yang duduk di rerumputan ini. Anak-anak, perempuan, pria, semua keluar saat listrik dimatikan. Mereka memakan buah, bermain dan menghisap sisha seperti yang dulu pernah mereka lakukan,” ujar seorang pegawai pemerintah Abu Zaidoun (35 tahun), seperti dilansir The National.

Dia menambahkan, orang-orang biasa keluar saat tengah malam. Jalanan penuh kendaraan lalu-lalang. Warga seperti tidak peduli perang sedang berlangsung.

Tahun lalu, masih di Nahar Isha, wilayah itu sepi orang saat malam. Lubang bekas peluru menghiasi gedung-gedung. Puing-puing bangunan akibat penembakan oleh tank berserakan.

Di wilayah yang cukup makmur di pusat Kota Damaskus, penduduknya menyangkal terjadi perang. Beberapa mennganggap perang terjadi di tempat lain. Yang lainnya berusaha menyelamatkan diri dengan mengungsi ke Lebanon.

Namun, di wilayah yang miskin sulit menyangkal terjadinya perang. Kebrutalan perang telah merenggut nyawa lebih dari 160 ribu orang. Serangan udara, bombardir rudal dan baku tembak mewarnai Ramadhan. Namun, di tahun keempat perang ini, keadaannya terasa berbeda.

“Saya sangat sebagai di Ramadhan tahun ini. Orang-orang pergi ke pasar, kedai kopi, mereka menonton Piala Dunia dan mencoba melupakan pembunuhan dan pertumpahan darah,” kata seorang sopir taksi dari Ruken al-Deen di utara Damaskus.

Pasukan yang loyal kepada Presiden Bashar al-Assad juga telah melonggarkan keamanan di pos pemeriksaan sejak dimulainya Ramadhan. Pos keamanan tersebut di antaranya di jalan besar yang menghubungkan Bab Masala dengan pasar Mezzeh melalui Kafr Susa.

Dua tahun lalu, jalanan tersebut ditutup seluruhnya selama Ramadhan. Tahun ini, kehadiran pasukan keamanan jauh berkurang. Pos pemeriksaan besar dimana terdapat beberapa tank juga telah ditarik. Penarikan tank itu membuat lalu lintas menjadi lancar karena tidak ada antrean.

“Banyak orang lega dengan dibubarkannya pos pemeriksaan. Mereka merasa lebih aman meninggalkan rumah saat malam hari. Restoran dan kafe sekarang lebih padat dibandingkan sebelumnya,” kata salah seorang warga.

Ramadhan tahun ini jelas berbeda dibandingkan tahun-tahun sebelumnya. Banyak orang telah menyesuaikan diri hidup di tengah kondisi krisis. Penduduk Suriah berusaha menikmati hidup mereka dan berusaha tidak memikirkan pertempuran yang berlangsung di negara mereka. (rplka/rez)

4 Important Ways That You Can Cooperate with Your NYC Car Accident Lawyer

9 Agustus 2022 - 02:38 WITA

4 Important Ways That You Can Cooperate with Your NYC Car Accident Lawyer While an auto accident may not seem like the end of the world, it is a situation that can get messy. There's no reason why you have to navigate the situation on your own. Choosing to retain the services of a NYC car accident lawyer will make it easier to figure out what needs to be done. Here are some of the things you can do to ensure your lawyer is in a position to provide the greatest amount of help. Tell All Without Reservation From the moment that the initial consultation begins to the resolution of the event, it's important that you share everything that you know with your legal counsel. No matter how insignificant something may seem to you, tell the lawyer anyway. What seems like nothing to you could turn out to be important to the case. This applies to any details that you may find embarrassing. Your legal counsel is there to help you in any way that the law allows, not pass moral judgments. If what you share is not needed to pursue the case, then it will remain strictly between you and your legal counsel. If it is important to the case, rest assured it will be utilized with as much discretion as possible. Ask Questions When You Don't Understand Something Your lawyer does not expect you to be a legal scholar. The whole reason that you are seeking legal help is because you are not sure what should be done and which laws apply. For this reason, your lawyer is not going to be upset if you have questions. Go ahead and ask about anything that comes to your mind. The lawyer will break things down in a way that you can relate to and understand. This will help you to see why the lawyer is recommending a certain approach to the case, and what it would mean to the anticipated outcome. Follow the Advice Given There's a good chance that your NYC car accident lawyer will have some advice for you. It may have to do with who you speak with about the accident, where you go while the case is pending, and a number of other actions. Each piece of advice is intended to protect the integrity of the case and ensure that there are no distractions that might aid the opposing counsel. For this reason, take whatever your lawyer suggests to heart. To the best of your ability, follow that advice. If something happens and you find yourself in an awkward position, let your lawyer know immediately. Let Your Lawyer Do the Talking When it comes to communications with the opposing party, everything must go through your lawyer. Even what seems to be innocuous attempts to communicate should be shut down at once. All you have to provide is the contact information for your legal counsel. The point is to avoid saying anything that may be interpreted in more than one way. By refusing to respond to everything from inquiries about how you are feeling to questions about the accident itself, the odds of providing the other party with something they can use to shift responsibility to your shoulders is eliminated. Remember that your lawyer is there to protect your interests. Make sure that everything you do supports that effort. Doing so will improve the odds for successfully reaching an equitable outcome.
