Arab Springs Project- Syria

History of protests

Protests began March 2011, people protested because the government wasn't treating people fairly. The government responded to the protests by killing people. More than 100,000 people have died.

Today

What's happening in Syria now is Tunisian revolution and it is an internal conflict. Prime minister wael Nader al-halqi is in charge of the government. There will be elections and they will be within the next year or two. Challenges that the country faces is the water and electricity being shut off.

The international community

American solders go to Syria and help the people that are in danger. Priority issues between the two states include the Arab–Israeli conflict, the Golan Heights annexation, the Iraq War, and the Syrian civil war. The government of Seria treats the people really bad, I would consider this a revolution because they're protesting against the government.
