Syriatoday.info is designed to provide you with a complete understanding of the Syrian conflict. We want anyone who comes to Syriatoday.info to walk away smarter and better informed about what’s happening in our world.
More than 350000 people already died in the civil war in Syria which is ongoing since 2011. More than 12 million people were expelled from their homes because of the battles between various factions. Part of the reason why the conflict in Syria is so complicated is because of the huge diversity of ethnic and religious groups living there. The protests in Syria, which started as a part of the big wave of “Arab Spring” protests, turned into a armed conflict with the government after protestors demanded the removal of President Bashar al-Assad. The armed conflict then turned into a proxy war between various countries seeking for power in the Middle East. The current fighting faction are: the Syrian Government with its allies (including Russia, Hezbollah and Iran), Sunni Arab rebel groups, Jihadist rebel groups, the kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
