- Syria has been mired in violence since March 2011
- Questions surround the supposed cease-fire and the future of al-Assad
- Signs show that everyday life for Syrians is becoming more difficult
- It's been a month since a "cease-fire" was due to come into effect in Syria
- There has been no relief from the violence despite the U.N.-backed peace plan
- It's starting to resemble early stages of the Iraqi insurgency in 2004
But clearly, there is no let-up in the violence. Daily reports spill in of bombings, shootings, explosions and more as opposition groups and the regime forces of President Bashar al-Assad battle for more than a year.
So, where does the Syria conflict stand now?
