Nine years have passed in March since the democracy movement that began in Syria in 2011 turned into a war.

What was initially a simple structure of Syrian government forces vs. rebels has been replaced by an influx of various forces from outside the country.

On October 9, 2019, Turkish forces began to invade Rojava, an area of effective Kurdish control across the border, as if waiting for news of President Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops, announced three days earlier. Turkey, Russia, U.S., ISIS, Kurds and Syrian Forces are in. Now, the war in Syria has entered a new phase.
