Syria, formally the Syrian Arab Republic, is a Western Asian nation. Syria is bordered on the west by the Mediterranean Sea, on the north by Turkey, on the east and southeast by Iraq, on the south by Jordan, and on the southwest by Israel and Lebanon. Cyprus is located in the Mediterranean Sea to the west. Syria is a land of lush plains, high mountains, and deserts, with a varied ethnic and religious population that includes Syrian Arabs, Kurds, Turkmens, Assyrians, Armenians, Circassians, Mandaeans, and Greeks, among others. Sunnis, Christians, Alawites, Druze, Isma'ilis, Mandaeans, Shiites, Salafis, and Yazidis are among the religious groupings. Damascus in Syria's capital and biggest city. The major ethnic group is Arabs, while the largest religious group is the Sunnis.

Syria is a unitary republic with 14 governorates and is the only nation in the world that adheres to Ba'athism politically. After it was suspended from the Arab League and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation in November 2011, the Non-Aligned Movement took it out of the Arab League and the Union for the Mediterranean by itself. It is also a member of that group. Here we collected some latest and most historical Syria Pictures.

Historically, the term "Syria" referred to a larger territory, roughly equivalent to the Levant, and known in Arabic as "al-Sham." The contemporary state includes the ruins of numerous historical kingdoms and empires, notably the 3rd millennium BC Eblan civilization. Aleppo and Damascus, the capital, are among the world's oldest continually inhabited cities. Damascus was the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate and a major city for the Mamluk Sultanate in Egypt during the Islamic era.

After centuries of Ottoman domination, the modern Syrian state was founded in the mid-20th century, and after a short spell as a French mandate, it became the biggest Arab state to emerge from the previously Ottoman-ruled Syrian regions. Even though French soldiers didn't leave the country until April 1946, Syria became a parliamentary republic on October 24, 1945, when the Republic of Syria became a founding member of the United Nations, ending the French Mandate.

From 1949 until 1971, the post-independence era was chaotic, with many military coups and attempted coups rocking the nation. Syria and Egypt formed the United Arab Republic in 1958, but it was short-lived due to the Syrian coup d'état in 1961. After a constitutional referendum on December 1, 1961, the republic was renamed the Arab Republic of Syria, and the country became more unstable until the 1963 Ba'athist coup d'état, which has kept the Ba'ath Party in power ever since. From 1963 until 2011, Syria was under emergency law, which essentially suspended most constitutional guarantees for residents.

Bashar al-Assad has been the president of Syria since 2000, succeeding his father, Hafez al-Assad, who served from 1971 to 2000. Syria and the governing Ba'ath Party have been denounced and criticized for a variety of human rights violations, including the killing of people and political prisoners on a regular basis, as well as widespread censorship. Syria has been mired in a multi-sided civil war since March 2011, with a number of nations from the area and beyond participating militarily or otherwise.

As a consequence, a variety of self-declared political groups, including the Syrian opposition, Rojava, Tahrir al-Sham, and the Islamic State group, have developed on Syrian land. Due to the conflict, Syria was rated bottom on the Global Peace Index from 2016 to 2018, making it the world's most violent nation. More than 570,000 people have died as a result of the conflict, which has resulted in 7.6 million internally displaced people (according to UNHCR estimates from July 2015) and over 5 million refugees (according to UNHCR registrations from July 2017), making population estimates difficult in recent years. Here we collected some latest and most historical Syria Pictures.

Ancient Bosra Syria

Bosra has a long history and was a flourishing provincial capital and metropolitan archbishopric during the Roman Empire when it was under the authority of the Eastern Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East. During the Islamic period, it remained administratively significant, but during the Ottoman era, it became less so. It also became the titular see of a Melkite Catholic Archeparchy and the episcopal see of a Latin Catholic titular church. It is now a well-known archaeological site that UNESCO has named a World Heritage Site because it is so important.
