From last seven years, civil war is going on in Syria. Initially it all started as a peaceful protest against President Bashar al-Assad resignation. Mr. Assad was not able to control this uprising in peaceful manner. He used force to stop protest. Later it turns into a civil war.
Syria is a Sunni majority country ruled by Alawite (one of the branch of Twelver imam of Shia Muslim) Al Assad Family. Alawite comprise of around 11% of total Syrian population. Due to the involvement of many other nations situation is escalated to civil war. Different countries are supporting different groups and consequently Syria became a battleground. More than 300,000 peoples were already killed in this civil war.
U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel, France, and Libya are supporting Rebel groups. Whereas Russia, Iran, Iraq and North Korea are supporting President Bashar al-Assad. Civilians are dying in this tug of war where as, no one want to reach to a peaceful solution. No one is interested in right and wrong. All countries are politically motivated in supporting one group or the other. War Continues. Humanity is dying daily.
