Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with numerous opposition factions and Islamic extremist groups fighting government forces, seeking to topple the government of President Bashar Assad.

A ceasefire deal for Syria was worked out by Russia and the United States and took effect on February 27. The cessation of hostilities does not apply to terrorist organizations, such as Daesh and the Nusra Front, both of which are outlawed in many countries including Russia.
