IS has been defeated in Iraq and their reign of terror that killed and enslaved thousands of Yazidis is over. But the Yazidis for the most part remain displaced. What will become of them?
Syria's complex and devastating civil war has drawn in multiple foreign powers since it broke out in 2011. With Russia and Turkey seeking new solutions, DW examines where the major players stand on the conflict.
