Civil War

Civil war continues in Syria. The conflict began on March 15, 2011 and by April 2011 demonstrations grew nationwide. The conflict is between forces loyal to the Syrian Ba'ath Party government and those seeking to oust it.

No part of Syria should be considered completely safe and immune from violence. The potential for hostile acts, including kidnappings, exists throughout the country. The risk of death or serious injury is high in various areas of the country, including densely populated urban areas, due to indiscriminate shelling and aerial bombardment.
