REACHING REGIONS TORN APART BY VIOLENCE

In 2011 large swaths of the Syrian populace began protesting against the Assad’s government. The protests turned violent and they ultimately turned the country into a civil war. Rebels and government forces began infighting and in the chaos factions of extremists began forming a jihadist militia known as ISIS. Along with former ties to Al Qaeda, ISIS origins can be attributed to the lingering affects of maligned sunni-shite relationships from the western occupation of Iraq and former Primer Minister Nouri al-Maliki .

ISIS began spreading rapidly across Syria and Northern Iraq. Their intrusion into Iraq saw the quick collapse of the newly formed Iraqi army and the loss of territories recently held by western forces. They left in their wake a trail of horrid atrocities, death, and a generation of broken children. Over 14 million children have been displaced and affected by the spread of ISIS in the middle east.
