We present another material from our cycle "international politics for dummies" where we explain complex international processes in simple words

The beginning of 2019 was rather bloody in Syria. During one week more than a hundred people were killed, even more were injured, and in the North of the country there was one of the biggest outbreaks of violence in the last 1.5 years. The fifth “jihadist civil war” began on January 2 and continues to this day. What is it and why do they write little about it in the media? Ukrainian Institute for the Future explains the situation. The material is available in Ukrainian.
