Since the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War in 2011, the MDC has tracked and analyzed developments as they have occured. The involvement of Iran and Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the Western powers, by proxy or directly, in the Syrian conflict, has exacerbated the devastation wrought on that country, as has the emergence of the Islamic State and other Islamist groups. Below you may find our coverage of the issue, though the archives below are not exhaustive.
