Who are the Syrian people?
The Syrians are a diverse ethnic and religious people from the Syrian Arab Republic, mainly consisting of Levantine people such as Syrian Arabs, Kurds, Turkomans, Arameans, Assyrians and Armenians.
Syrians speak Syrian Arabic as a mother tongue, with Kurdish, Armenian and Turkmen amongst other spoken dialects and languages.
All Syrian ethnic groups have been affected by the war as the Syrian Civil War stemming from the war which has been ongoing since 2011. This war has caused the largest refugee crisis since the WW11 with many refugees traveling travelling to other countries for safety.
What is the Syrian Refugee Crisis?
Syrian refugees have fled their homes and country seeking protection because of the civil war as of March 2011. Many have been displaced because of civil unrest causing them to flee for their lives.
It is estimated that about 13.5 million Syrian refugees are dispersed throughout the world, and according to the UNHCR, an estimated 4.8 million fleeing to Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt and Turkey.
Syrian refugees are fleeing their homes because of violence, broken infrastructure and displacement as its main cause.
They conflict has also gotten worse with the intervention of foreign military powers with many Syrians having to face daily violence with nowhere to live.
The lack of food, resources and shelter are also a major cause for Syrians fleeing the country with nowhere to go.
Syrian asylum seekers also suffer from malnutrition, manipulation, forced labour, disease and basic amenities to lead functional lives.
