Syria has been ravaged by the eight-year war that began in 2011. The nation is being split by the fighting between pro-government troops, which support the Damascus government, militants from various groups, which oppose the administration led by Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Daesh.
The conflict in the country produced over 5 million refugees and over 6 million internally displaced people. Over 13 million Syrians, nearly half of them children, require humanitarian assistance.
Russia and Turkey, along with Iran, are guarantors of the ceasefire in Syria.
*Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS) is a terrorist group banned in Russia and many other countries.
