Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of Syria Deeply. While we paused regular publication of the site on May 15, 2018, and transitioned some of our coverage to Peacebuilding Deeply, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on the Syrian conflict. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at [email protected].

Understanding ISIS

Born out of a merger between al-Qaeda in Iraq and the political chaos following the U.S. invasion of Iraq, click here for an overview of the group that today refers to itself as the Islamic State (ISIS).

An alliance of international partners, led by the United States, has launched a campaign of air strikes to degrade and destroy ISIS. Check out this video to understand why, and how, they’re taking on the threat.
