As the death toll tops 17,000 in Turkey and Syria from Monday's twin earthquakes, we look at the situation in Syria, where 12 years of brutal war have left the country's institutions in tatters, further complicating aid efforts. Syrian writer, dissident and former political prisoner Yassin al-Haj Saleh describes how the war has killed about 2% of Syrians and displaced 7 million more, or about a third of the population. He is author of the book "The Impossible Revolution: Making Sense of the Syrian Tragedy."
