February 23: Syria—Endgame or Escalation?

Syria’s nine-year civil war erupted into a humanitarian crisis with close to a million Syrians fleeing the war zone for safety in Europe. At the present time, the United States maintains a military presence in Syria with a mission to protect the oilfields and help fight against remnants of the Islamic State. Tensions between U.S. and Russian forces have escalated with Russia’s failure to adhere to mutual de-confliction processes and with Syrian and Russian troops attacking opposition forces. Najib Ghadbian will explain the ongoing geopolitical and border conflict between Russian-backed Syria and Turkey and the growing hostilities that have led to uncertainty regarding the U.S. role in the region.
