A civil war started what became the Syrian war as we have known it the past seven years. The origin was in fact a peaceful demonstration. The ordinary people were discontent for good reasons: their quality of life, income, availability of goods, freedom of speech was all negatively affected by the new regime. They gathered together to protest but Assad reacted with undue force. Many were killed.

Other groups with sinister intention used that situation to infiltrate, create division between different Muslim elements, ISIS was able to gain footfall and were allowed to by Assad as then dissident groups were muddled and it became too difficult for outside countries to know who was responsible for the worst violence. Nevertheless, outside countries joined in the conflict and it worsened.

The Syrian Civil War is a continuous multi-sided conflict in Syria fought primarily between the Baathist Syrian Republic led by President Bashar al- Assad, along with its allies, and forces antagonizing both the government and each other in different combinations.

The unrest in Syria evolved because of displeasure with the Assad government and skyrocketed to a conflict after protests calling for his elimination were violently suppressed. International organizations have also accused the Syrian government, ISIL, opposition rebel groups, and the US-led coalition of severe human rights violations and massacres.
