Since been forced to leave their homes,

Since the Syrian Civil War began in March 2011, millions of Syrians have been forced to leave their homes, either because. The Syrian Civil War has proved that Bashar Al Assad, current president does not know how to control his people. It has brought many problems onto both the Syrian people themselves as well as the people in surrounding countries, such as Jordan and Turkey. Syria no longer belongs to the Syrian civilians, but to the government and other rebel groups, who’s arrogance have driven them into the terrible war. The war continues to be a complicated conflict, as the territory continues to shift between different rebel groups, including the Kurdish forces, ISIS, the Free Syrian Army, and the Syrian government itself. The UN has attempted to make a change in this current conflict, but has yet to be successful in thawing the war.History of Syrian Civil War The Civil war sparked during the Arab Springs, which were protests that took place in the Middle East against corruption and lack of power in the people. In support of these Arab Springs, some teenagers decided to graffiti anti-government slogans onto their school wall. They did not expect the consequence to ultimately become the Syrian Civil War. A few days later, government officials knocked on the door of (The teenager) and took him away. The government tortured him, along with 14 other suspects, until they confessed. The outrage that this caused led to protests within Dera, a city in Syria. What started out as a peaceful protest soon became a violent one, after government officials begun throwing tear-gas bombs that injured a few people. Because of this, more protest started to arise through other cities in Syria. When the concerned parents of the teenagers asked about their safety, the government officials said, “Go home and make some more. And if you don’t want to, give us your women and we’ll make more for you.” Bashar Al-Assad has yet to admit that there is a great problem in his country. Because of his lack of leadership, Syria has now been conquered by many rebel groups, including ISIS. (View Point of Bashar Al Assad). UN Attempts to Put A Stop to the Conflict There have been some attempts from the UN to put a stop for this ongoing conflict. Their attempts have included the approval of a draft, which proposed a ceasefire between Bashar Al-Assad as well as the rebel groups, who have greatly been funded by Turkey, Syria’s neighboring country to the North. In a meeting to discuss the approval of a draft in which the representative of Saudi Arabia urged for Syria to change its human rights and to let the Syrian people have Syria. Turkey agreed with Iran, arguing that “the regime was employing all instruments to prolong its grip on power and the Syrian people being brutally punished with chemical weapons, targeting civilians, sexual violence, torture, starvation and siege” (United Nations, 2017)1. He urged for Syria — who, despite all the valid arguments encouraging the country to accept the resolution being discussed, denied its failure to protect the civilian’s rights  — to approve the text, to at least “demonstrate international solidarity with Syrians in their pursuit of accountability” (United Nations, 2017). Additionally, Mr. Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, has not given up on his attempts to end the war. Five inta-Syria talks have taken place throughout 2017, which discuss the drafting of a new constitution, the possibility of holding elections in order to have the country be run and owned by the Syrian people, as well as strategies to combat terrorism. Conventions of parties in Ankara, Turkey, have actually concluded in the agreement “by Russia, Turkey and Iran… to a nationwide ceasefire that began on December 2016”, and the creation of “four ‘de-escalation’ zones in Syria”, although it has been violated several times since then  (United Nations Office At Geneva, 2017). It seems as though the proposed thawing of the Syrian Civil War during all of these UN talks, has actually taken a step further, as Bashar Al-Assad has stated in Sochi, following his meet with President Putin that he intended to “‘talk with anyone who is really interested in a political settlement'” (United Nations News Centre, 2017). All the decisions taken in the UN regarding Syria have the necessity to meet with resolution 2254, passed in 2015, which conveyed the pursuit of the implementation of a “Syrian-led and Syrian-owned” government in order to end the conflict (United Nations, 2017). Involvement of Surrounding Countries in the War The Syran Civil War’s complexity extends beyond a few rebel groups within Syria. Iran has provided support for the Syrian govenrment, supplying it with weapons in order to fight “terrorist groups” (Bashar Al-Assad considers all foreign groups involved as terrorists). According to the Syrian Arab New Agency, in a meeting between President Bashar Al-Assad and Iran’s Strategic Council of Foreign Affairs, Assad thanked Iran for its contribution to the success of the Syrian Arab Army against terrorism. Turkey has been funding Syrian Rebel Groups rather than the Syrian government, since it does not agree with its decisions since the start of the conflict. Because Turkey has “opened its doors” to Syrian refugees, it has become of great importance in the war. One of the main reasons why the Syrian government recently succeeded in the gain of the five biggest cities in Syria (including Aleppo, regained in 2016) is because of the support and air power from Russia. Distribution of Syrian Territory The Islamic State, is one of the revolting groups within Syria. It’s mainly fighting for the destruction of Syria’s border so that they can create their own state between Syria and Iraq.Works Cited
