This short video is intended to provide key information important to understanding the basic conflicts of the war in Syria. The video maker has intended the video to be as neutral and informative as possible. The war is very complex and there is much more to say, but the video is intended to provide a starting point for everyone to do further research.

Editor's correction: Assad is Alawite, not Alevi.
