The battle in Syria has lasted for almost seven years. And in that point, many regional and worldwide gamers have had a direct influence on what is going on on the bottom. The USA, Russia, and Iran have all been concerned ultimately or one other.
Turkey is in the course of a army operation in northern Syria. It needs to push out Kurdish fighters from the world closest to its southern border.
