The Syria conflict: Latest developments

Before it began, 2020 was assessed to be the last year of the Syrian civil war, which erupted in 2011. This turned out to be either wishful thinking or an overly optimistic assumption which fell victim to the Corona virus. As the year approaches its end, the conflict is still there, with most of the same domestic and foreign actors - the Assad regime and its opposition, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Israel, the United States and various Jihadi groups. What are the military and political pictures?
