Four fifths of the population live in the climatically favored west of the country. The society of Syria is ethnically, religiously and culturally very diverse. Most of the Syrians are Arabs, the Kurds are the largest minority. Jews and Christians have lived in Syria since ancient times. Almost all of the Jews emigrated. Almost nine tenths of the residents are Muslims today, three quarters of them Sunnis. Since the Assad clan came to power in 1970, the political elite has come from the ranks of the Alawites , a Shiite community. Other religious communities are Druze and Yazidis. The Syrian civil war turned 13 million citizens into refugees.

Together with Lebanon and Palestine (“Old Syria”), Syria belonged to the catchment area of ​​the ancient oriental civilizations. Damascus is one of the oldest continuously populated cities in the world. Long-distance trade routes crossed in Syria between Mesopotamia , Egypt, the interior of Arabia and Europe. In Hellenistic times and in the Roman Empire, the country was prosperous, visible to this day in the ruins of Palmyra and Bosra. Early Christianity and its literature written in the Syrian language developed in Syria. With the Islamic conquest in the 7th century, the country belonged to the core area of ​​the caliphate empire. There were Islamic art and shaped Arabic literature. In the Middle Ages, Syria was in the forefront against the Christian crusader states. In the 400 years of Ottoman rule (from 1516) only a province, Syria remained an important long-distance trading center.

The current state is the product of colonial agreements in World War I (Sykes-Picot Agreement , 1916). France was a mandate power of the League of Nations from 1920 until the country was fully independent in 1946. It was mainly in Syria that Arab nationalism developed against the Turks and the pan-Arab movement against the European colonial powers. Since the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, Syria has been one of its fiercest opponents (Middle East conflict). The Golan Heights have been under Israeli occupation since the Six Day War. Syria became a major host country for displaced Palestinians.

Syria is an authoritarian state with B. al-Assa d (from 2010) as president. His regime is based on the socialist-oriented Ba’ath Party , secret services, parts of the army and Alawite militias. The violent repression of the security forces against protests culminated in a destructive civil war in 2011/12. The economy, which relies heavily on the oil sector, fertilizer production, and agriculture and food processing, has been shattered by war and international sanctions.
