With a death toll in the hundred of thousands, and millions displaced, the Syrian civil war has become a violent mark on the world’s history. What started as a peaceful protest has spread over five years, has evolved into a war with a tyrannical government, a clashing rebellion, and terrorism fighting either side. But what is it that really fuels the immense amount of violence? It can be narrowed down to four groups that are obvious. The government and the rebels are the forerunners in violence in the war, sure, but they aren’t the only ones. There are the terrorist groups, with skewed views to support the destruction of people and things around them, and in itself the stark difference of the religions and ethnicities of Syria. Who causes
The Syrian Civil War has had a profound effect of all Syrians as well as neighbouring countries and the international community. With more than 11 million homeless Syrians comes consequences beyond what most of the world population has ever experienced or anticipated. Of the displaced, almost 5 million are refugees outside Syria and around 6 million have been displaced inside Syria, with half of all displaced Syrians being children. The main causes of displacement amongst the population is the violence committed by all sides of the war, and which often targets civilians or centres of high civilian activity (such as markets, hospitals, schools, workplaces or high density residential areas). One main group heavily affected by the conflict
With over 470,000 Syrians deaths and more than a million injured, the Syrian Civil War is the deadliest conflict that the 21st century ever witnessed. Half the country's ante-bellum population has been displaced from their homes. On April 7, the US carried its first direct military action against Assad's forces, launching 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air force base from which US officials believe a chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun had been launched. The abuse of military power, ineffectiveness of the attack and inept allocation of funds towards the military operation make the attack on Syria an unjustifiable use of unilateral force.

The Syrian Wars were one of the most devastating in the Hellenistic world; they changed the political and economic landscape of the region permanently in a way that hadn 't happened since the conquests of Alexander. These wars brought about the end of the Pharaohs, they allowed Rome to come and seize Egypt and Syria, and Parthia to annex what was left of the Seleukid dynasty. The massive impact these wars had upon the Hellenic world cannot be understated. Egypt would never rise to its former glory. It would become another province of Rome, later to be held by the Byzantines, and then Fatimids, where it would not regain true independence until 1922, shaking itself from British colonial rule. It is a shame that these wars are not given the rigorous study that they deserve. This paper aims to explore the Syrian Wars in three ways. It will begin with discussing how the death of Alexander the Great and his inability to form a sustainable bureaucracy and a proper heir set the stage for his generals to fight each other for his empire. It will focus upon the actions of Ptolemy and his successors, and their role in the Syrian wars, and how Ptolemaic power declined as the wars raged on. It will conclude by explaining how the aftermath of these wars lead to the demise of Ptolemaic power, and their eventual absorption into Rome. Because of the length of the timeline that will be discussed here (this paper will attempt to describe 200 years of history in under 15 pages), a narrative
Syria, an important and influential country in the Middle East resides on the four corners of Africa, Asia, and Europe. Syria’s history dates back many centuries and covers the multi-highway of commerce and religion. Both the ancient Silk Road between the Mediterranean and China and the Pilgrim’s Road to Mecca pass routed throughout Syria. Although the country’s population is 86% Muslim, the oldest Semitic language of Aramaic written in parts of the Hebrew Bible is still spoken today.
The Syrian war is perhaps the worst type of war of modern time. The war has gone on for more than five years now, and a solution is yet to be found. The conflict has claimed over 250 thousand lives and left more than six million refugees (Erlich 1). It is believed that more than seven million have been displaced internally. The escalation of the war and difficult in finding a lasting solution is due to the involvement of foreign countries. The situation in Syria has been made by the interference of the West. The West did not only create the situation Syria, but they have intensified the dilemma and made the conflict last for many years. Some people may argue that the Syrian war was influenced by Arab uprising.
What started as an uprising against the Syrian government has become a proto-world war with nearly a dozen countries embroiled in Syrian conflicts. One of these, being a Civil War between the Syrian government, rebel groups, and the Islamic State (ISIS). Rebel groups supported by the United States are focused on toppling the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad. The groups are funded, supplied, and trained by US militia. However, Russia, Iran and the Lebanese group Hezbollah want to keep Mr. Assad in power. Majority of airstrikes on rebel positions have been coordinated by Russia and the Syrian government. This, indirectly, creates tension between the United States and Russia. The third group, the Islamic State, wants to both unseat Mr. Assad
Genocide is the brutal killing of a large group of people, in most cases it is based on their nationality or ethnicity. Genocide is occurring in Syria. This means that many civilians are being killed for doing nothing wrong. The crisis in Syria started out since 2011. The Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad, started attacking peaceful protesters with many deadly sources. Those actions have now caused a civil war between soldiers who support the president and the rebels who do not want to see the president in power. Families are leaving to look for safety and a better future. Many Syrians are forced to flee their country and are becoming refugees. The crisis in Syria has caused the greatest refugee movements in our recent history. Syrians are
The conflict in Syria has cost the lives of more than 250,000 people as of 2015 and is increasing each day. The Syrian Civil War is the cause of these killings which began in 2011. Problems arose when people protesting the government were arrested after displaying graffiti that was not in favor of the Syrian Government, and when people were being killed because of the search for political demonstrations. The protesting is a result of the Arab Spring, which are multiple uprisings and rebellions disapproving the Middle Eastern governments. This movement began around the early 2000s when the people of the Middle East were fed up of the dictators in the region and they wanted more freedom. There are four major groups that are involved in the
What comes to mind when you hear a country is going through a humanitarian crisis? Perhaps destruction, genocide, surveillance, propaganda, civilians not having a voice, and much more. This is what happened in the city of Aleppo in Syria. Aleppo was one of the oldest city with marvelous medieval architecture, rich cultural history, and its popularity in tourism. Aleppo was an open museum and a home to two and half million people, but all of that was lost in the Battle of Aleppo. Syria is ruled by the dictator Bashar al-Assad and has been in power for seventeen years. Assad restricted Syrian civilians from freedom of speech and according to CNN “gave the government broad power to detain people for perceived threats to national security” (CNN).
Syria has been the epicenter of wars and prosperity for many decades. Whether it’s the Syrian-Franco war that gave their independence, or the flood of Universities that entered in the 1950’s; it’s always been a mixed bag with Syria. Many people will look at the destabilize modern Syria and wonder “How did it get to this point?”, well in reality it was not one event rather a concurrency of events that all led up to Syria’s likely demise.
Throughout history, many countries and states have gone to war and fought each other. These conflicts could have a laundry-list of reasons as to why they are occurring, such as natural resources, attempts to gain land, and access and occupation of highly regarded religious sites. War and battling for resources and other materials has been no new topic to us all, but there is one conflict that has blown the lid off everything that world has ever seen. This war has two names, the Syrian Civil War, and the War in Syria. The atrocities that have been witness and or inflicted upon others is absolutely unacceptable, and must be stopped.
The Syrian Civil War has become now an international conflict between USA and its allied groups and Russia and its allied groups. USA and its allied groups support free Syrian army who are fighting against Syrian Government Bashar Al Asad. On the other hand. Russia support Syrian Government Bashar Al Asad. The two super power(USA and Russia) are engaging Syria war for their own benefit. Russia supports Syrian Government for remaining historical relation between Russia and Syria. By remaining good relations with Syrian Government Russia can control Middle East by using Syrian sea port Turtas and Russia economically will be beneficiated. On the other hand USA is involving Syrian war for supporting its Middle East allied groups(Saudi Arab, turkey, Israel) who are the neighboring country of Syria and they are supporting free Syrian army. The other causes of USA behind involving Syria war are to continue oil business and weapon business well.
