Either they really are fighting terrorists, or they are pretending to fight terrorists but hitting Syrian military targets, or they are killing civilians along with the terrorists who are using them as human shields.
Or they are funding, arming, training and fighting alongside terrorists.
The defenders are Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, the Kurds in Syria-Iran–Turkey, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Russia and China.
The protagonists either directly or indirectly are Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Israel, Morocco, Turkey, Ukraine, Germany, France, UK and the USA.
The Islamic terrorists themselves are the Muslim Brotherhood Wahhabi factions under many different brand names. From Al Qaeda to Al Nusra and anything that they might think up next. Islamic extremists in turn come from over 100 different countries around the world, including Europe, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Those claiming to fight terrorism but over the past six years have been exposed for supporting them in one way or another are the CIA / USA, UK, Germany and France. Funding for the terrorists for training, arms acquisition, narcotics trafficking, human slavery and organ harvesting has been laundered through major banks such as Deutche Bank, HSBC, and many others who over recent years although they have been exposed, still managed to fly under the radar and pay pithy fines.
So without further ado, here is the recent carnage.
