Summary/Abstract: The war in Syria has many dimensions. It is true that it is a civil war, as well as it is an international war. Yet, it is a war against terror. The citizens of the same country fight against each other, foreign forces participate in the fight to defend their own interests, while certain terrorist and counter-terrorist acts take place in the country. While the UN can’t play any effective role in managing the conflict constructively, many external and internal powers, such as Russia, Iran, the US, and Turkey, try to design a new order in the country. At the same time some illegal organizations such as PYD/PYG and ISIS try to obtain a more favorable position and legitimate their status. All the local and international actors, as well as legitimate and illegitimate players want to gain more leverage in Syria. The civilian population of the country has suffered from the very beginning of the civil war gravely. One segment of the civilians that has suffered tremendously is children.
