Syria's state of affairs amid foreign intervention

It was fifty-one years ago, this week, that Hafez Assad seized power in Damacus and launched his family’s rule over Syria. Following his own three decades as dictator, his son Bashar has clung to power now for twenty-one years, half of which contained a bloody civil war mixed with foreign interventions. With Russia, Turkey, the United States, Iran and Israel all involved in moves and operations, along with Kurds, various opposition groups and a beaten but not gone Islamic State, what is the state of affairs in this war-torn country?
