Why is Syria at war...

Syria has been involved in an intense conflict between different organisations and groups ever since the violence began in 2011. The Syrian civil war started out as a conflict between Ba'athist Syrian Arab Republic led by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, along with domestic and foreign allies, and various domestic and foreign forces opposing both the Syrian government and each other in varying combinations. The conflict is part of a larger wave of the 2011 Arab Springs movement and was caused by the growing discontent with the Syrian Government. 

As the conflict carried on, many foreign stakeholders made their way into the conflict and Syria became the groud for the next proxy war between the United States and Russia along with other nations like Turkey and Iran. Russia primarily supports the Syrian Arab Republic led by President Bashar al-Assad has been conducting airstrikes in Syria since 2015. The United States and its allies that have been present in Syria since 2014 have used the presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Islamic State as a justifiable reason for being in Syria. They have conducted numerous airstrikes and military operations against ISIL and sometimes government and pro-government factions.
