With hundreds of thousands dead, the conflict in Syria has become one of the most devastating conflicts of the 21st century. As a result, a refugee crisis has arisen and there is no end in sight for 11 million displaced Syrians. The civil war in Syria has spawned several different factions opposing each other. The sides include: the Syrian Regime, ISIS, Turkish forces, Kurdish forces, and the Syrian opposition.
“The civil war in Syria has evolved into a series of alliances on the ground with outside powers increasingly drawn into the conflict, backing opposing sides, but also nominal allies who often turn on each other.”
