Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed in the conflict, mainly by regime airstrikes targeting opposition-held areas, while millions more were displaced. During the conflict, the Assad regime has been accused many times by international actors of targeting Syrian civilians with chemical weapons.
According to the UN, 13.1 million people in Syria are in need of humanitarian assistance, some 6.5 million people are now food insecure, and 4 million people are at risk of becoming food insecure -- more than double the number at risk a year ago.
Turkey currently hosts over 3 million Syrian refugees, more than any other country in the world.
