Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on protesters with unexpected ferocity.


Hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives, more than 5.5 million civilians took refugee in other countries when the civil war left eight years behind.

It was a period of “Arab Spring” in the Middle East, and, a group of students in Syria's Daraa wrote "Ohh doctor (Bashar al-Assad), it is your turn" on the walls on March 15, 2011, igniting a revolt against the Syrian regime.

Inflicted with unemployment, corruption and oppression under a single-party rule for half a century, Syrian people carried out demonstrations across the country.

When the Syrian regime began to suppress demonstrations with violence, it evolved into a fully-fledged civil war.

UN officials said that the Syrian regime has committed war crimes such as using chemical weapons, starving the population, deportation, blockade, arbitrary arrests and tortures.
