Syria Crisis: Who is bombing whom?

The Middle East has long sat at the crossroads of conflicting national interests. CCTV’s Roee Ruttenberg takes a look at some of the players now involved in the Syrian conflict.

More details:

  • Moscow is backing Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, and opposes anyone who threatens his rule. That includes some American-backed Syrian rebels, which Washington suspects may have been the real target of this week’s Russian strikes.
  • This week, Saudi officials again rejected an outcome that could see Assad stay on and said they’ll boost supplies to his enemies if a deal is not reached soon. Riyadh has also been conducting air strikes against ISIL alongside the US, Jordan, and Gulf allies Qatar, the UAE and Bahrain.
