Syrian War By: Haley Patnode

Parties of the Conflict.

“Syria is….. unstable due to conflicts between religious and ethnic groups”.

Other people from different groups have their own beliefs and they all critized eachother past and current.

Today the Islamic State is blowing up precious cultural monuments in Palmyra, and half of all Syrians have been displaced - as if, on a proportional basis, 160 million Americans had been made homeless. More than a quarter-million have been killed. Yet the "Save Darfur" signs have not given way to "Save Syria."

Half of the Syrians are homeless

History Background

Causes

Assad shot people who were running a protest. This happened in 2011. The Rebels decided we are going to shoot back at the Assad group. Assad is the president of Syria.

Jihadists are fighting for the rebels. They are coming from Jordan and from around the region. The teamed up together to fight, the Kurds join in the rebels.

Assad gets Iran to help fight the rebels. The gulf states are sending money their help through Turkey to get to Rebels.

Obama got involed and thought “Hey, lets helps out the other blue team”. *The blue team is Rebels.

Assad poisoned his people with chemical gases, many children are dead. The united states are angry and pissed and sad at the same time. The united states volunteered to kill the red team with their robotic drones. Russia joined along to help Assad.

The Effects

“More than 250,000 Syrians have lost their lives in four-and-a-half years of armed conflict, which began with anti-government protests before escalating into a full-scale civil war. More than 11 million others have been forced from their homes”

People are losing their homes due to the fight and people have died from

that all parties to the conflict have committed war crimes -including murder, torture, rape and enforced disappearances.

The consequences are war crimes

The Syrian government has also enjoyed the support of Lebanon's Shia Islamist Hezbollah movement, whose fighters have provided important battlefield support since 2013. The Sunni-dominated opposition has, meanwhile, attracted varying degrees of support from its international backers - Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan, along with the US, UK and France.

People outside of the syria are joining forces to help destroy each other from assads attack.
