The Syrian army wants to seize all of Aleppo from rebels before U.S. President-elect Donald Trump takes office in January. Here are five reasons why they might succeed.
Germany has decided against military involvement in Syria's civil war, although it welcomes US-led airstrikes against the Assad regime. Marcel Fürstenau unpacks this seeming contradiction.
With the "Islamic State" largely defeated, the US has reportedly been looking to form an Arab force to secure northeast Syria. Experts warn the military presence could further complicate an already complex civil war.
The State Department has said it has evidence the Syrian regime was behind last week's chemical weapons attack on Douma. As Trump weighs his next move, the US has started moving ships to within striking range of Syria.
France has proof that Syria used chemical weapons, "at least chlorine," said President Emmanuel Macron. Britain has stressed the need for an international response to the attack.
