When the so-called Arab Spring arrived in Syria, it brought with it some serious consequences. Hundreds of thousands of civilians were slaughtered along with the destruction of ancient and modern cities in Syria. In addition to this, the refugee crisis threatened both regional and international peace and security. All these disasters led the UN Security Council to issue a resolution for international humanitarian intervention in Syria along the lines of humanitarian military intervention that took place in Libya, but after several attempts it failed due to the repeated vetoes from Russia and China. This study will focus on two direction in which the first is the response of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) toward the Syrian Crisis, while the second is the effects of the international community behavior toward the Syrian Crisis. In other words, the aim of this article is to compare the two direction in order to come up with an answer whether the past UNSC drafts resolutions concerning Syria were really humanitarian aimed or not.
