    • The war in Syria has gone on for over five years and has claimed the lives of more than a quarter of a million people.
    • It is being fought between soldiers who support the president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, and a group of fighters known as rebels, who don’t want him to be in power anymore.
    • Because it is being fought between two sides within the same country, it is known as a civil war.
